A number of times over the past few weeks I've wanted to take pictures of a certain scene but for one reason or another I didn't or couldn't. So my descriptions will have to do instead. I know a picture is worth a thousand words, but does that mean I have to write a thousand words to equal a picture?
One morning I left for work in the rain. I was cursing my choice of footwear as I could tell my feet would be soaked by the time I got to work. Across the street I could see a woman much better prepared for the weather - rainboots, waterproof pants, raincoat (with the hood pulled tight and only half of her face showing), large umbrella (a little overkill given her full-body getup), and hose...
Wait a second! HOSE?! whaa?!
It was pouring rain, this lady was all decked out in rain gear and yet she appeared to be randomly washing the sidewalk.
I didn't know whethei to worry that she might be cleaning up some toxic substance or be annoyed at her pointless waste of water!
Taking the train home after work I often find myself standing at the doors, looking through the glass at the city as it speeds by. Sort of like the movie 'Shall We Dance?' (I pass a dance studio too)
The otherday I saw a little old lady immaculately dressed in a kimono - sitting by herself in McDonalds.
