Say What?

You know how you can be walking around and catch a part of a conversation that attracts your attention? On a recent meet up with some members of the Monochromia blog we found ourselves waiting in Grand Central Station. I was walking past the information kiosk when those words caught my attention. That’s all I heard, but it was enough to spin me around in search of the source, hoping for a photograph. I saw this and the camera came up long enough to record this image and then everything changed. People stepped in front of me, and by the time I got another look it was all over and the woman at the window was gone. Damn, this street photography business is hard for an old guy like me!

Built in 1903 this New York City landmark with its 44 platforms on 49 acres of underground is the largest of its kind in the world. Here my wide angle lens being put to the test capturing its cavernous Main Concourse, the center of Grand Central, at 275 feet in length a 120 feet wide and 125 feet high and is reportedly visited by 20 million plus people every year.

Grand Central Station

It’s hard to believe that it’s already been 3 weeks since some of the Monochromia contributors gathered in NYC.   I’ve barely had time to go through my photos!

I waited for what seemed like forever but in reality was probably only 20 minutes, for just the right moment.
