I wanted to do a black and white photo of the subways in New York during a time most people shouldn’t have been on the subways (sorry mom). It was eerily quiet compared to the hustle and bustle that was a few hours before. In a way thought, it was oddly beautiful. For the record, I wouldn’t do that again even though I was there with two other friends waiting for the reroute to get back to the city and to our hotels. It was late, way late, (or early, too early–whatever 3:30 AM is to you) and I won’t lie–there were lots of prayers said in my head to keep us safe.
