I pass this blue temporary boarding frequently, and have wanted to use it as a backdrop for ages, but the light has always been either too harsh or too flat. As I passed by on this day, however, the light wasn’t too bad, and I saw someone that would work well against such a bold background.
This is Jeremy. He had paused to pull a Metro paper out of the box and he was taking a peek inside as I approached him to ask for his photo. He was slightly apprehensive at first but when I explained further he became comfortable with the idea. I took a couple of frames, got his name and then he had to run to catch the train. A very short encounter but that’s the way it goes sometimes.
