iPhone 11 Pro 365: Day 130: In the Dark

📷 11 February, 2020 | Day 130 | Apple iPhone 11 Pro | iPhone 11 Pro back camera 6mm f/2 | ISO 160.

Ugh. I'm tired of this weather. This morning I awoke in the dark, dressed in the dark, drove to the train station in near darkness, and spent my entire commute in a tin tube. The sun was nowhere to be found. Even when I walked from the train station to the ferry terminal, it was without the sweet warm caress of the sun. Ahead of me, I could see the glass and metal of Manhattan. The ferry arrived. I boarded, watching out the windows and the raindrops at the boat bobbing in the water. I spent most of the day indoor under artificial lighting. When I ventured out for a break and to use my Asahi Optical Co. Spotmatic II to photograph the sidewalks under Pier 11 and complete my roll of Kodak Tri-X, I did it under gloomy and damp overcast skies.

It was only on the way home after work that I caught a glimpse of the sun on the ferry ride back to Paulus Hook. But only for a moment. It was 4:30 and the sun was going down and I had to get back into the metal tubes to go home, arriving at Princeton Junction train station in the dark.

    It does make for a good photo though.

      Yes it does and if I was in Manhattan specifically to take photos I would have no complaint. But when rushing from one transit point to the other to get the work for a specific time, I have only seconds to enjoy what's before me.
