Subterranean homesick blues

Subterranean Homesick Blues

Piece description from the artist

The title of this piece is a reference to the Bob Dylan song, but also a reference to the fact that this is one of the few images in my portfolio that is outside of Detroit. This is a long exposure of the 'L' subway in Chicago, Illinois. I wanted to capture not only the movement of the train, but the slight movement of people waiting for the train to arrive.
