Waiting in Grand Central Station,
New York City, 2003
This is a time-lapse exposure of a busy city crowd moving through Grand Central Station. The effect was created completely in-camera.
The woman seemed to be a lonely tourist waiting for someone to come rescue her. She was so amazingly still that she looked afraid to even move.
I never saw anyone come, and she soon walked off by herself. I wish I could find her now to give her this photo.
