One and only face facing the camera, it draws the eye and radiates light. I like this a lot, Marian.

Thanks Nezih, I was lucky this young and pretty lady looked at me.
I cannot begin to explain the craziness around that subway station. It is a couple of blocks from my place, so I took the time to shoot until the last ray of light was gone.
Only ONE good picture.
Thank you so much for commenting on this image Nezih.
Gua como se nota la mira de la muchacha es espectacular.
The light and imagery are great, Marian. As strong as your last. The one face looking is great.

Well it might be "only one good picture," Marian. But that's one good picture.

...and it really is a very good picture.
We might have to do something about you, Marian, because you're getting too damn good. GrinGrinGrin

Crowds Marian, well captured, Venezuela made the news this morning about the murder of your Miss Venezuela Sad Sad that so many people are murdered here and perhaps that reflects on this image. Thought provoking indeed !!!

Well that is some compliment coming from Alan!
Great title Marian and amazing that you captured that one beautiful face in the crowd.
The striped top in front of her helps too. Clever girl Marian.

The others are right, my eye was also drawn to the young lady's face instantly.
Then the crowd becomes overwhelmingly poignant.
Your B&W images are a delight.
