In response to WP Weekly Photo Challenge: Waiting.

In railway halls, on pavements near the traffic,
They beg, their eyes made big by empty staring
And only measuring Time, like the blank clock.
—Stephen Spender

    Lovely shot! Waiting too long for someone is frustrating though!

          1. Thanks Mara. I’ve fallen back into my old habit of writing a bunch of posts on the weekend and scheduling them. It’s a good feeling when I have every day scheduled but sadly that doesn’t happen very often.

          2. Aha! I used to do that before, scheduling posts, but now I’m too impatient and just publish everything as soon as I write it. Another thing to learn from you!
