Waiting, photographing, reading, texting, pacing, staring, thinking. Well, all of that can happen when you wait at a train station, in this case the station Gleisdreieck. The girl on the left was taking pictures with an old film camera.

Yesterday I spent half asleep after not being able to sleep much during the night. I have bouts of insomnia at times. This time it was just a single night and I made up for it by sleeping until almost 11.30am this morning. Yesterday I watched some documentaries, spent some time drawing and I watched a movie or two. Sometimes it’s just fine to not do much at all. I didn’t go out, so the picture was actually taken a few days earlier. Well, I can always take more pictures when I’m more awake.

  1. Your work is so good. There’s a story and a slice of real life in each image, wrapped in an artful package.
