On this particular day, I caught sight of a lot of people carrying around cups with the word “YOU” printed on them. These are presumably from one of the many coffee shops around, however the fact that this man is looking away, but his cup has caught me in the act of taking a photo, i find ironic.
At Waterloo Station, because Remembrance Day is coming up soon I saw a lot of Charity Workers, selling poppies- these were both the old and the young. It was nice to see that although most people in the station were rushing around to get places; work, school, out and about, a lot of the people were still considerate enough to take the time to donate money and buy a poppy. It restores faith in humanity, and with the number of people wearing poppies it shows that people still know what matters and have respect for those before us.
What makes Waterloo Station so interesting to observe, is the business and the activity. It always seems to be go! go! go! However, there are moments, when people do stop- whether its helping someone out when they’ve dropped something, check the board times, or in this case reaching for something in a bag. In this photo, I really like the contrast between the movement in the background and the man in the foreground searching for something- as If he as all the time in the world.
