train from cincinnatti-washington dc: 03:30-20:00
the moon was full and high when i left west chester. it left a strange silence on the roads and the still houses. on the way to the station we went passed trucks travelling in tandem through the night-defence from darkness in numbers.
out of the darkness came sleepy encounters with strangers. a photographer steps from the small sleepy crowd-taking pictures of the empty tracks, waiting. emerging out of the line of people-forward. polite words break through the night and so begins a journey; a connection.
hours are filled to capacity with words and images and an easy trail of questions leading us closer to our destination. with our arrival into dc and promises for tomorrow the city opens up and stretches out in front of me.
