Waiting Low

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.

    Thanks Mobilus, I'll add this to the pool.

    I somehow get the sense of loneliness and I-don't-care-what-you-think attitude of this guy.
  • Jimmy O'Kelly PRO 9y

    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.
  • Mo Riza PRO 9y

    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.
  • Kathya 9y
