I'm Late I'm Late
I'm Late I'm Late
On a recent trip to the east coast and back, I passed through O'Hare airport in Chicago, so just had to stop in the United Airlines underground concourse to do another series of photos. One of these days I'll miss my next connection, I get so absorbed in photographing people passing through there. I sit on the floor, and brace my back against the wall in order to hand hold the camera at slow enough speeds to get the motion blur I like.

Very nice capture, Mary-Ella! I'm very familiar with this underground terminal, as I've traveled through there many times, captured many images.

Nicely done!
Regards,

Thanks everyone - I appreciate your comments. :) I had to virtually fill all 5 of my memory cards to get that one perfect arrangement of people passing by. What fun!

Excellent! I love the angle you've used, and thanks for sharing your technique. The people in the photo seem oblivious to you, which further accentuates their lateness or their hurry. Congratulations on POTD!
