Empty Spaces

As busy as the subway train station can be at times, sometimes there’s a split second or maybe a few minutes when you can actually hear a pin drop. It’s between those moments I take full advantage of and pull out my camera or my phone. I’m not sure what it is about empty spaces that intrigue me but I’m always eager to capture that scene. Not that I don’t like when there is people but sometimes too much will be a distraction as to the kind of image I’m looking for.
