Waiting for the bus
Waiting for the bus by Helen in Wales
Waiting for the bus, a photo by Helen in Wales on Flickr.

47/52 for the group 52 of Twenty Eleven

This week's theme was: Waiting (People in Queues)

At the moment, the queue consists of one young man, listening to his MP3 player and tapping his foot. The woman may be about to join him because she struck up a conversation with him in Welsh as I walked past after taking the shot.

He is presumably waiting for the driver to return to the bus parked by the kerb. It is standing cold and dark, engine off and doors locked. Or then again, he could be waiting for a different bus entirely. At certain times of day, the square jams up with up to four or five buses, double-parked, all trying to pick up passengers from the same spot at the same time.

Its always surprising to realise that what seems mundane to me will appear exotic to someone else. :)

It's not that I don't think that the place I live is beautiful, but it's going through a slightly run down, dreary patch at the moment. Too many empty shops. :(

Oh, we get that too, but in ugly rundown sixties buildings, quake and sun damaged.

We were standing outside the doors of the local Sushi Train the other day, waiting for it to open. It's actually quite hard to get a seat on a weekend there now, so a small crowd of locals had gathered, standing around in groups like people waiting for a bus.

An older lady walked by and asked, greatly amused, if the sushi train was running late...
