‘The waiting is the hardest part.’
from The Waiting by Tom Petty
Amy at The World is a Book challenges us to show waiting. It’s spring here in the southern hemisphere and it feels like we’ve been waiting forever for buds to break …
… and for the rain to stop.
I can hardly wait for the pears to be ready, but in truth it’s months away yet.
Traveling can be a master class in waiting. It can seem an eternity from booking that holiday to taking off. And then it’s all endless lines and patience. I’m from a small town and I’m not accustomed to lining up and waiting but I got good at it on a recent trip, especially at the US border. We waited for hours to board a cruise ship.
The line went on and on and on at customs.
And we waited for planes at Vancouver airport.
I can’t thank the conveners of the Lens Artists Challenge enough. Tina, Amy, Patti and Ann-Christine give us a forum for sharing our photographs and challenge us to try new things. It’s a lot of work, responding to all those posts so as Shakespeare said, ‘I can no other answer make but thanks and thanks and ever thanks …’
