lens-artists photo challenge #72 – waiting


Not really my strongest side … I’m so impatient. So likeness my mum … things have to happen now … right now!!! Except when I’m in transit because then I know it’s out my control.

    • Amy, thanks for you faithful support. Yes, you’re so right … that was my thought about my gallery. Everyday we wait for something. *smile – Great topic.

    • Thanks, John .. not this time. It was on a Sunday and the shops are not open Sundays in Vienna. Not even corner shops. I guess she was visiting a washroom. *smile

      • I was in Vienna many decades ago and definitely noticed that, unlike ‘Merica, the shops were not open on Sunday. What uncommonly Common Sense!!!!

      • John, BILLA (foodstore) at Franz-Josef- Bahnhof is open on Sundays, I totally forgotten about that shop. Merica … I can’t recall any shops by that name.

      • …unlike here in America/the U.S.A. (‘Merica), where we seem to be open nearly 24/7… is what I meant. Sorry for my abbreviations. 🙂

      • Okay, no problem … now I have learned something new today too. … here in Scandinavia, it is more normal – no 24/7 yet. No need for that really, but in the UK the biggest superstores (food) have open. Supermarkets … some have open 9-10pm, but no longer.
        Normal shops only to 6pm and shopping malls mostly to 8pm and once per week to 10pm, but open every day. It’s all about spend … spend … spend. To catch our money. But we Swedes do a lot of online shopping those days, I do a lot … not food.

    • Thanks, Tina … so glad you like the gallery. That means a lot. Yes, he wasn’t happy sitting there outside the supermarket on his own. I don’t understand why people need to bring their dogs when they are shopping.
