What does alone mean in todays hyper digital society? I’m not sure. However sitting on a storage crate, under a dingy underpass, staring intently at a very powerful little electonic device is as good a working definition as any.

There is a story here. I don’t know it though. If I was a better photographer, I’d be able to give you more of a glimpse of it but as it stands now we’ll just have to make up our own.

 

 

 

The Lonely Traveler

This was taken in Grand Central Station a few years ago. It’s a different kind of photograph than I usually take. It is minimalist to the extreme and not in sharp focus to boot. The mood and the story are primary. I like it as much for what isn’t in the frame as for what is.

It’s not often one of these monster tourist buses goes by with a single passenger. Maybe the 98 degree temperature today had something to do with it.

The more I roam around these streets. The more I see the existential loneliness of our species.
