Default Hurry up and wait...

A lone person waits this morning for the transit bus to come by and pick him up. It was around -20c and I'm sure this person wishes the bus would just hurry up.

i like the shadowed figure, set against the snow and the freezing bus-stop cubicle. sets a nice mood for a cold wait. i just wish the lamp post sticking out the top of it wasn't there. without it, it would set the feeling better for him looking out over the valley.

That's a real goody, Kevin. I like it a lot.
The light and the composition is great with the horizon giving depth and the sloping snow on the side providing the always welcomed diagonals.
The colors you have chosen are perfect to underline the feeling of solitude.

Beautiful!

I agree with Dustin, but only to some extend, because of the protrusion itself, but - on the other hand - without this lamp there wouldn't be any shadow against the rear-panels!

Best regards,

Walter

OMG Kevin you wern't laying down in the snow for this, were you? HA HA HA HA. Really a great shot my man. It had depth and interest, AND if I am not just completly noodles, I think I see some old cave man drawings in the ice on the wall next to his(her?) head.wild boars head or something... Hummmm just too active an imagination I presume if you don't see it also. Very touching photograph! Frank

LOL I really like your humor Kevin thanks for the update on the petroglyphs, I was stunned to hear they were done by a modern day artist. LOL Frank
