If On a Winter's Night.

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

Nick Turpin's photographs of London bus passengers on winter nights are gorgeous and ghostly, full of mystery. They remind me of those fleeting moments on trains when you catch the eye of someone in a passing car — you wonder, what are they thinking about? or where are they going? or did they see me, too? Those moments — connecting with strangers, however briefly, and dreaming up their stories — is one of my favorite parts of living in a city.


See more at Nick Turpin's website, here. Thanks, Ignant.

There's something platonically romantic about those connections we make with strangers that makes life all the more interesting. Love this.

I love this and I think for your reasons too - I'm often left thinking about others lives even making up little stories in my head :) The last photo is amazing!
