I’d been planning to spend a day in New York City to do my usual exploring, and my husband wanted to go to the Apple store. When we walked in, it was mobbed with shoppers. As I stood waiting to climb the spiral stairs, I glanced up and spotted this image. I found it fascinating how the stairs were made of opaque glass, letting me see only the bottoms of people’s shoes and a hint of their shadowy figures above. I centered myself to frame the stairs between three skyscrapers and took many shots, landing on one that shows the motion of people traveling side-by-side in either direction, with one figure standing, waiting, observing the scene, just like me.
