This photo was taking on the train from Manhattan to Brooklyn. The man writing was completely absorbed in whatever he was working on. I didn't get a chance to see what it was (Schoolwork? Something for his job? poetry?), but he didn't look up the whole trip. The man sitting next to him (who was not with him) has the classic expression of NYC onlookers, who are somehow curious about the people around them, but rarely interact. He's not doing anything in particular on the subway, just taking a ride with a lollipop.
