Borrow I Read

She is the last reader who I photographed in 2012. I went up to her after I took the shot, to ask if it was alright with her. She asked me if I’m the blogger who takes pictures of people reading on the subway. I said yes and she shook my hand so warmly. It’s a deep feeling, to connect with people who I’m already connected to somehow, and I couldn’t have asked for a more meaningful moment to wrap up my underground shooting for the year. When it was time for my stop on the train, she looked up again and wished me Happy Holidays. I was already mentally out the door though, and I just sort of waved without responding. So this is a note to her, but also to everyone here: I wish you a Happy New Year, with light, love, and the fruition of your dreams in 2013!
