B&W Photography, May-Aug 2018, Uncategorized



This photo of a man on a cell phone was taken with a cell phone on a CTA (Chicago Transit Authority) Purple Line train. I travel on this train quite often but don’t usually carry a camera with me.

We live in a society focused on distractions. I enjoy distracting myself by focusing on other people’s distractions.

As with the haiku poet, the photographer strives to capture a moment in time. Sometimes the simplest moments are the most telling. In this photo, the speed of the train is juxtaposed against the relative stillness of the texting subject.
