Some Time Away

Richard Allen Clements is ready for some down time in Florida. Everyone needs some time away, even do-gooders like Richard. As someone who helps create a safe place for at-risk youth and substance abusers, Richard also knows the importance of  making time for himself. Here, he’s packed and ready to arrive in style for some down time in Winter Haven, Fla. From his experience, the perks of train travel are simply, “No hassle, comfortable seats, and superb employees.”


Amtrak challenged Brandon Stanton, the photographer behind Humans of New York, to leave New York and capture #AmtrakStories from across the country. For 31 days, we’ll share one new portrait and story each day on our blog in celebration of the customers who ride America’s Railroad.
