Lover’s Embrace on the MTA

Lover\'s Embrace on the MTA

How about some from our trip to Manhattan? Funny when a photograph happens right in front of you. Or in this case the next subway car. I was sitting minding my own business and in the corner of my eye I see this couple embracing. Snap. Snap again. Two shutter clicks without thinking and not even looking if the exposure is close. I got lucky.

    thumbs up!

  3. What a great moment. Very nice…

  4. This is just so real and so beautifully captured. Love that the subway window acts as an urban frame. Also the front section of window pushed up in the foreground and reflections add the clues as to your position. Beautiful image. A winner! It pays off to carry a camera everywhere. This is where preparation meets opportunity.

  5. such a great shot!
