Woman Forever Lost to the Subway Tunnels of Philadelphia

From the refuge behind the viewfinder of my camera, this image allows for meditation on the fast paced lifestyle of the city. In this busy landscape, signs of life are ubiquitous but people sparsely populate the image which captures a decisive and fleeting moment in time, allowing for thoughtfulness by using the only form of media that can provide this opportunity to pause reality.
