  1. I never enjoy waiting...am not sure what time of day this photo was taken...are these folks connected to each other or are they waiting along? I guess each is busy about their every day lives.

  3. Good shot. It looks like the lady is not sure if the bus is going to come or maybe if it's going to be on time...and she probably has a job interview! Yikes!

  9. I love the facial characteristics of people taken unawares - as some of yours are here. They are off in their head thinking thoughts while they endure the interminable wait.

    Good choice for our Theme Day.

  19. A beautiful shot showing a slice of life in your city. The two women hold their hands to their faces. Are they trying to avoid a smell?
