Waiting Around

Waiting Around

I often approach people that look like they are waiting for something. Like this group of great peeps that all took their time posing for a portrait and who also happily answered a few of my questions while waiting. You can find all of them on this blog. Rosanna and Lisa were waiting for a bus. Ida was waiting for her mother. Max and Sabina sat on a bench at a commuter station. Mikael and Bosse where waiting for a photo opportunity. Alexander for a fish to bite. Emma was waiting for the bus home. Michelle was waiting for a ride on the same bench as Petronella and Bettina who was waiting for the train. John's bike had broken down and he waited for assistance to arrive. The trainspotter Benjamin from Germany was waiting for a freight train to pass. The ice-fisher Nils was waiting out on the frosen lake. Andreas with the broken Harley was waiting for help. Rolf was waiting for the King of the Forest. Malin was waiting to become a mother. Finally Stina who was waiting for the bus.

Today is theme day and as you have probably already guessed the theme for December is Waiting. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants

This is such a great theme with so many possible ways to meet the challenge. You have chosen a very creative way to illustrate waiting, Steffe.

You take such beautiful portraits of people. They look so intense, so full of life, like they would be interesting to talk to and hear what they're thinking about life and the state of the world.

Thanks all. I don't wait around much, but I'm happy that others do, so that I can get a portrait every now and then!
