We missed our Metro-North train upstate on a weekend in January, giving me the opportunity to float around Grand Central Terminal with some coffee and my camera.
I didn't plan on shooting this day, but that's something I love about the Fuji x100s. It's so small I can just carry it around in my jacket by default, and when the opportunity arises I have an awesome large-sensor camera with me.
For a while I've been wanting to build one of these narrative-style posts as seen on Exposure and Paul Stamatiou's site. Matt Mullenweg has been publishing some similar galleries with WordPress, too. Usually I look for individual photos that can stand on their own, but here I focused on collecting a series of shots that might work together on this page.
Our hour starts at the ticket counters in the Main Hall, as our train pulled away without us.
We take the Long Island Rail Road a lot more often than Metro North. I wish Penn Station were this nice.
Apparently it's squash week. These courts for the JP Morgan Chase "Tournament of Champions" were set up in Vanderbilt Hall. This room used to be the main waiting area. Now it's usually home to special events.
Grand Central Market
Nothing terribly interesting happening with the squash. Headed over to Grand Central Market to look for some food.
Main Hall, Again
Can't shoot Grand Central without getting up high on the staircases.
The Dining Concourse
And finally down to the dining concourse on the lower level for a few last shots before catching the next train.
This violin player was getting started at the top of the hour. I grabbed one last shot, tossed her a few dollars and headed for our track.
