After visiting a museum in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, I decided to take the subway back to my hotel. As I often do for street photography, I find a scene that I think has potential and then I just wait for a person or people and other elements to appear in an interesting arrangement. In this case, I waited for a moving subway train and several people spaced out and relatively motionless. A person entered the scene and I took several shots at 1/8th of second hoping to get the person in mid-stride in an open space in the scene. I have waited as long as forty-five minutes for a shot; this time it was only about fifteen minutes.
