While on the short outing last week that yielded the surreal foliage image, I happened upon this scene. While sitting on my scooter, I whipped out my camera and took this picture.

I have no idea what they were waiting for; I doubt it was their transportation, since it was a one-way street heading in the direction they're looking. The street was positively packed with people, so the few cars that were around were going very slowly. I was lucky to get a clear shot.

On the temple grounds is a temple-run preschool (the sign on the gate above the kimono-clad lady with the cell phone says “Eikando Preschool”) that we visited while considering schools for Anthony. They have very cute, but expensive, uniforms.

Anyway, for some reason, I like this picture.


One comment so far...

I like it, too! Wonderful picture!
