This picture was taken in August of 2010. One of my favorite places in the world is the NYC subway. As a child I was first tempted by the strong smells emanating from the grates in the sidewalk. Later, it felt like a slice of the world encapsulated in a tiny enclosed space. What I like about this picture is that it depicts the speed in which NYC runs. Sometimes things happen so quickly in New York that if you dare to blink, you might just miss it.
