This one is for Bartek, who liked my "Indifference" photo from the metro.
Same time, same place, but another lady. Image quality is not the best as it is tightly cropped, but hopefully with the similar symbolics of the speed we are all trapped in today in our lives.
Life certainly doesn't wait for anyone, so don't forget - Carpe Diem;D

Hope those of you who celebrate Easter today have a lovely day!

Hi Marija, it does look like life is passing her by at full speed.

Very good mood image.

I hope you're having a great day.


love the movemnt here maria :)
nice simple composition in b/w, i love subway photos :)

What can I say, it's good to have a picture dedicated to oneself, and I appreciate it! Much like your indiffference shot, I like this one as well, the symmetry of the never ending streaks of the subway and the stillness of the person waiting for their metro.

great shot and have a great day!

Hi Marija,
What if it passes more slowly? It's a great shot. Well done & TFS.
Have a nice day,

Nice graphical image,Marija! Beautiful composition! Great urban and modern picture! Very well done! Michel

Someone in front of a passing subway... a cclassic. Very well done here with a strong 2/3 composition and a great soft speedy background.

Hi Marija,
I like this photo that show very well the speed of city life with this blur background. Very well done.
Have a great day

This is a wonderful capture Marija, the person infrond and the movement of the metro...my compliments.

J ;)

Hi Marija
Great movement here! This is very nicely composed...black and white works quite well. Thanks for sharing!

There is something very fast here; the passenger is not moved at all; the standard behaviour in these places.
Eastern is a festive of Memento mori but your Carpe diem is even important.
Thanks Marija

Excellent Marija
I love the motion in the photo and having your model with her back towards you makes it kind of dramatic, your choice to use black and white works perfectly here with your frame.
Thanks for sharing

So this is how you feel these days! I understand! :)

Nice illustration of a meaningful concept, Marija.

Yes, carpe diem! Tomorrow is promised to no one... :)))

Hi Maria, Great subject in action. Cool light in speed create line work! It's reminds me the song of Cold Play > Speed of Light. Good concept in Speed of Life too ;) Well done!


I like this shot a lot. I've always wanted to take a similar shot with a static human figure with life passing by. I was thinking of people walking by fast. Would you be my model for that shot Marija? ;)

As for urs, I like the fact that the photo is a bit blurrish..just like life is not clear cut with all it's grey areas (hey ur photo is b&w too!). WEll done!

Carpe Diem indeed! ;)

Simple and thought provoking. Nice work once again Maria.


Hi marija,
So you're back in action again, or just for this short holiday?
Great photo with good motion.
I hope you enjoyed Easter and got some time to relax.

Hi Marija,
Great shot, love the motion, looks great in Black and white.
Sometimes it would be nice just to stand for a short while and let the world rush by...sometimes.
Best wishes
Rob :)

A nice, graphical image, Marija. I think this would be nice in colour too. I love the lines in this one, they really express speed!

As beautiful as your other one taken in the subway, Marija. I like the choice of B&W here and the person alone on the quay. The blurry background is quite good as well. Excellent!

Great effect, Maria! With a bit of luck, you managed to have the woman entirely against the bright zone at the bottom; would not have been as powerful otherwise. Well done!

not only that it has a terible speed...but sometimes it passes near us...and we can do nothing but watching....

Hello. And life is passing by her...
Great shot. Excelent sense of moviment. Well done. :O)

I think this pic is very dynamic thanks to the train in movement.
Nice shot!

Roberto Juarez!

Wow! I like this speed impression very much! I can feel the life passing by me, yes....... Bw is great too on this photo. :)

Hello Marija.
I like this work of yours with its excellent cropping-composition and sense of speed. I love this B/W and the big white frame. everything with the note is very moody to me.
