Lady in Waiting

I caught this beautiful image of a woman awaiting the arrival of a friend in the midst of the chaos of the Hauptbahnhof. I love this area because there is so much going on, and it's wonderful to see people in the midst of their journey. In some ways, it reminds me of the loneliness that one can feel in a big city, even when surrounded by others. When we lived in Paris, we were constantly reminded of how anonymous the city could feel, despite being surrounded by 12 million people every day. I think this is true of any city, and it certainly comes across in this photo.

Nice photo mate, I'm guessing you have your camera on you at all times the number of updates to this site :-) What do you shot with?

Gorgeous shot! I need to do a shoot at the Hbf one of these days - there is so much material there.

Hi Matt,
Thanks for your comment. I do carry the camera around a lot, but also try to go out "on assignment" for lack of a better term and really try to capture a neighborhood. I use a Cannon 50D for the majority of the photos, and a Canon point and shoot for others (more convenient). For me, sometimes the post is more about the story than the photo, but if you can capture an image that is really strong as well, all the better. Take care.
