The Waiting Game

 
Platform nine and three quarters?
Some of these people might very well have looked less bored if they really were waiting for the Hogwart's Special. As it is, they're stuck with platform five. The lady in the pink top is decidely tired of waiting, the fellow in the blue check top thought he may as well take the opportunity to eat, and the chap in the white t shirt resorted to reading a newspaper.

Do you realise we spent most of our lives waiting? Waiting for the train, waiting for it to stop raining, waiting for a taxi to come, waiting for the dinner to cook and - waiting for the train.

It's terrible to forget what you are waiting for.

They could, for instance, read a book in the meantime, would make the waiting not so boring... :)
God bless you!

Or they could bring their cameras to take photographs for CDP. Amazing how much more aware they would become of their surroundings and how much more quickly the wait would pass.

B Squared - It would indeed be terrible to forget. Even more terrbile is to forget you had to wait and then miss what it was.

Cezar and Léia - I always have something in my pack to read.

Brattcat - I have taken to bringing my camera with me when I go out. It was so interesting taking photos of the platforms and people than time passed very quickly.

Cheers.

This looks like such a bright and clean place to wait, don't think I'd mind it all that much. Great photo full of interesting people!

Waiting is a lot easier if you know when it will end!
