'Waiting Times' by Dani Shimoni reminds me of sitting at 30th Street Station in Philadelphia. Although this particular shoot takes place in New York, the feeling of waiting and people-watching is the same. Shimoni does an excellent job of capturing the faces, places and emotion encapsulated in a train station, from the crowds bustling to get to their track to the rare moments of silence.
