Waiting Low

    Newer Older

    Let me sit here and wait
    Lower my self and rest
    I can see better
    I can feel better
    The light snaking on the rail ahead
    The rumble on my feet
    I am older and wiser
    I am shorter and slower
    but I am smarter
    I am predictable
    I am unlike the random gum spots
    on the yellow caution
    I am sticking to this pole
    not because I am old...
    I like the feel of steel nubs
    on my back!

      brilliant. does he notice you are taking his picture? do you always wear a big smile when you take pictures of people, just in case? how do you do it?

      Mo, i agree with Eric, first i thouht it was a Primarita-pic. But it is fully yours: great pic, love the expression on the man;s face.
      The sitting is called 'Jonggkok" in Indonesian, i believe? 'menjongkkok' ?

      Thanks tiilo, I sneak in most of the time and yeah ready to give those big innocent smile if I have to.

      Tita, he he yeah thats true. As woody explained "Jongkok" Thanks woody!

      Eric and woody, he he you caught me... I borrowed primarita's signature. Anyway all those greenish coloring in my pictures, I learned from my dear Tita.

      I somehow get the sense of loneliness and I-don't-care-what-you-think attitude of this guy.

      Excellent picture, Mo! I like how you bring out the colors of what could be a very drab settings, especially the specks of blue and the vibrancy of green & yellow.

    12. moriza 97 months ago | reply

      Farl, I agree with you... I am not sure how long was he there before me but we were waiting for the same train.

      Jimmy, Thanks! You have been posting super pictures! I love them! :)

      you have a distinctive way of making the urban, organic. This man looks like a crab, sitting in the shallow ocean. the colours are fantastic.
