Together

This is from a post I made earlier this year, Photographing Grand Central. It was very early in the morning and Grand Central Terminal was deserted except for this man and his son walking hand-in-hand together through the cavernous hallways. I couldn’t resist taking a photo; it was such a lovely image and perfect for this week’s photo challenge.

Pop over to my nature and wildlife blog The Eco and the Id to look at my other entry this week. xxx

About ailsapm

Hi there! I’m Ailsa. I’ve lived in many places, and travelled to many more. I had a lot of fun getting there and being there, wherever there happened to be at the time. I climbed a castle wall in Czesky Krumlov, abseiled down cliffs to go caving in the west of Ireland, slept on the beach in Paros, got chased by a swarm of bees in Vourvourou (ok that wasn’t fun, but it was exciting), learned flower arranging in Tokyo, found myself in the middle of a riot in Seoul, learned to snowboard in Salzburg, got lost in a labyrinth in Budapest and had my ice cream stolen by a gull in Cornwall. And I’m just getting started. If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read so far, I’d love you to follow my travelogue wheresmybackpack.com Remember, anyone who tries to tell you it’s a small world hasn’t tried to see it all.

  1. Very nice contrast with the people wearing dark clothes against the brightness of the Grand Central walls. Great shot & thanks for the pingback :)

      Thanks for the compliment, and I loved your image, wonderful statue to begin with, but the snow and choosing to shoot b&w made it all the more special. x

    I like this one even better than the deer(?) on your other blog. How lucky to have found them alone. I don’t think the photo would have as much impact if the father / son weren’t alone in such a large space.

      Thanks Jeff, a couple of minutes later the place was overrun with early morning commuters, I just happened to be in the right place at the right time. What was even more evocative was the sound of their footsteps echoing through the great silent halls. Wonderful moment. x

  4. Lovely. It’s a great place to photograph…

    So many interesting geometric shapes, and yet we can’t help focusing on the man and the boy. Beautifully done.

      I got really lucky with that shot, it’s rare to see Grand Central empty – five minutes later it was overrun with early morning commuters. Proof that the early bird gets the cool photo! :)
