Mariana in our car. Look here, look there.
Levittown high school track, 11 AM. Greg's last soccer game of the season.
Lisa pointed out that there are a lot of people - actually for the images I take I wait for crowds to thin out since more people makes for a crammed unimaginative composition and the crowd greatly darkens life.
Mick noted that the people I photograph do not seem happy. To some extent this is due to timing - I mostly photograph commuters at the start and end of workdays. Riders, particularly on subways, show little emotion. Subways are much safer than twenty years ago, but there is little privacy, less personal space and now as July approaches they are starting to get warmer and muggy. Sultry.
Here are some images for Lisa, all from my leftovers.
Penn, E train platform, tail end of the evening rush.

Here is one for Mick, taken this morning at Daniel's deli in Bellmore.
Snickers, Skittles, a plain bagel. 9:00 AM. I recall being fairly happy at the time.
