The Escalator Passenger


I rode with this guy on the subway to the Prudential T stop.

Initially I had hoped to get his photograph as he slumped in his seat on the train but I couldn’t do it and we seemed to be going separate ways as we started to exit the station. However, at the last-minute, there he was again taking the escalator to the shopping center above.

Nobody was anywhere near when I took this. A stooped old man in a dark trench coat being lifted up among the graceful curves and thin straight lines of a dingy subway stop.

Bowtie Wearer With Bad Knees I spent my early years in Massachusetts in a little town called Easton. I went to Harvard, served in the Navy as Operations Officer on and LST, founded a construction company and served in the state Legislature as Assistant Minority Leader. However my life really began when I moved to Maine and opened an art gallery. I've been around the fine arts in the commercial art business for over 25 years now and loved (almost) every minute of it. I look at every day is a gift, except when it's very cold outside or I have to go to the dentist.

I'd love to hear from you
