  3. All fabulous shots Jane with the many different aspects of waiting – loved the pregnant woman on the stairs in Shopping and your first one, wow, what a superb introduction – that forever feel of childhood waiting.

    • Hi Patti- Aren’t you a terrific observer to spot the pregnant woman. That sure defines waiting. So glad you liked some of my favorites that fit nicely into this theme… I’m rather fascinated with the concept. Thanks so much.

  6. The hurry-up and wait. I am well acquainted with it. The worst is when your on hold while on the phone. The best is when you can watch people.

    The boy day dreaming in Bangkok, that is a darn super image you got there.

  13. Waiting is part of life – and not always the most pleasurable part. You have captured the many stages of waiting delightfully in these photos. The body language tells its characteristic tales.

  30. Lovely set of photos for this week’s challenge, Jane. I really like all the bustop waiting shots – those people certainly look like they have something on their minds. Love the Einstein quote. Time, an illusion…now we see that moment in front of us, now we don’t. Time, it waits for no man 🙂

    • Hi Mabel, Happy you like the bus stops. I’ve been shooting them over the years and really like the interactions (or lack thereof) or the people waiting. That Einstein quote is really making people think! Thank you so much for your thoughts and appreciation.

    • Thanks so much, Tina. Well, not exactly finally– the bus stops have made many appearances on my blog, however, I am enjoying reworking the images and shooting more for a project I am doing for a course on portfolio development and personal imagery. Glad you enjoyed this set.

  32. I’ve come to view time as the instrument we use to conduct business and orchestras.

    Most of the people in the pics are looking stage left and the one looking right appears sinister.
