Photographer's Note

I had just arrived to the metro platform when I looked across the tracks and saw this candid scene. Although it’s painfully obvious that I used the cameras flash, and knew I had to, I couldn’t resist grabbing a quick shot. With the next metro car soon to arrive, low light conditions and no time to set up a tripod I opened up the aperture as wide as possible, boosted the ISO, activated the flash and snapped away.

I received some rather inquisitive expressions from people on both sides, but I think it was worth looking like the obvious tourist. My formative musical years were during the 80’s too, so it was a nice bonus that the background signage was for one of my favorite bands from that era.
