    Grand Central is one of my favorite places since childhood train rides to upstate NY. You captured the passageway of today.

    This is wonderful! I keep wanting to peek around the corner and uncover the mystery of the man’s face. Great composition.

  3. Bernice says:

    He looks like a spy and he sets a tone of mystery in the vast plunge into space.

    I love the mystery of the man in the suit. He is well dressed, wearing an expensive watch,and clearly communicating with his CIA contact! I also like the reflection of the overhead lights as they continue onto the face of the column – almost ghostly. This could be a Hitchcock poster for one of his movies! Well done again, Ellen.

    I am obsessed with this photo! The man is Mr. Every Commuter, and the blurred figures down the hallway seem to represent the chaos of GCS. So very awesome.

    Thanks Simone. I agree with your analysis of the figures. That’s what it says to me too!

    This is a great narrative photograph–you can tell by all the comments above. To me, it’s soooo New York. Can’t waste a minute. Going, going, going. Time is money.

    A very serendipitous metaphor within the photo – as so many people in our modern world do seem to be hiding behind their cells phones, and missing the bustling life around them.

  9. Cheryl says:

    I’m so glad you put the man in. It is definitely more interesting that way. It gives the photo a surrealistic look that grabs your attention.

    “halfway home” in travel but already home on his cell!

    I really love the mystery of this picture as well. And the color palette works really nicely with the overall intriguing, almost eerie feel of Grand Central at night. Well done!
