When my analogue obsession began and it became a habit to always carry at least one camera with me, I started taking pictures of people at the train station near my place. I always used to watch the people there and be kinda fascinated or annoyed by what they’re doing to kill the 10 to 15 minutes waiting for the next train. So one day I thought….hmm…why not take a picture?
I actually thought about doing a photo series and take a lot of pictures of this spot at different times. But somehow I’ve neglected this idea for a long time now. Hopefully this blog entry gets me into it again.
It just fascinates me how everyone has his own way to kill time. You can read a book or a magazine, listen to music, chat with someone, text someone, talk on the cell phone, talk too loud on the cell phone so everyone in the station can hear what you’re talking about, pick your nose, eat something, guard your bags, sit/stand there/walk around and think about something…
I’m the listening-to-music-type, sometimes I read a book or take pictures. But most often I’m too late, missed the last train, constantly look in the direction where the train is coming from and hope it will come every second although I know the next one is coming in 15 minutes.
And what do you do while you wait?
