Here is one of my favorites from a few years ago at a bus stop on State Street in the Loop area of Chicago. Shot in color, I transformed it to black and white because I wanted primarily the silhouette, the shape, and the tones. Backlit against the advertisement, which amazingly said “man kind,” this captured a woman at the end of day, shopping done, waiting for the bus to go home. I like it because of its humanity and of the intimate and solitary moment of an individual doing a very normal act like waiting for a bus, and yet I find something profound about this moment, this person, and her place in the city.
I welcome your comments.
