Hi and welcome to ‘Foto-Friday’

As the name suggests, I’m planning to share a single photo with you each Friday, but miss-spelling photo to combine the double F of the 2 words. Yes I know, not my most creative moment (it is spelt Foto in Portuguese though!)

Unlike the other articles on my site, this will be one shot and a few words.

Every day thousands and thousands of people travel on London’s underground.

Public transport doesn’t just move the body. The solitude frees the mind to wander.

Everyday, thousands of people sharing destinations but alone with their thoughts

Pensively Waiting

  1. There is a parallel story by
    Saint-Exupéry in
    The Little Prince, ch. 22 :

    “Good morning,” said the little prince.
    “Good morning,” said the railway switchman.
    “What do you do here?” the little prince asked.
    “I sort out travelers, in bundles of a thousand,” said the switchman. “I send off the trains that carry them; now to the right, now to the left.”
    And a brilliantly lighted express train shook the switchman’s cabin as it rushed by with a roar like thunder.
    “They are in a great hurry,” said the little prince. “What are they looking for?”
    “Not even the locomotive engineer knows that,” said the switchman.
    And a second brilliantly lighted express thundered by, in the opposite direction.
    “Are they coming back already?” demanded the little prince.
    “These are not the same ones,” said the switchman. “It is an exchange.”
    “Were they not satisfied where they were?” asked the little prince.
    “No one is ever satisfied where he is,” said the switchman.
    And they heard the roaring thunder of a third brilliantly lighted express.
    “Are they pursuing the first travelers?” demanded the little prince.
    “They are pursuing nothing at all,” said the switchman. “They are asleep in there, or if they are not asleep they are yawning. Only the children are flattening their noses against the windowpanes.”
    “Only the children know what they are looking for,” said the little prince. “They waste their time over a rag doll and it becomes very important to them; and if anybody takes it away from them, they cry…”
    “They are lucky,” the switchman said.

    I like the truth in both stories, but I prefer your version of “..solitude frees the mind to wander..” (although Exupéry seems to capture the majority reaction).

    And I DO like the Photo!


    1. Thank you and I love your comments Kristian.

      For next year I’m planning to scale back on all the camera stuff and I write more of photos and moods

      I fear only you will stick around to read it 🙂


      1. I’ve wondered why your comment form is so far down on your pages, it takes some determination not to just skip commenting but to go on looking for it.

        I think the comment form should be visible right at the end of your text!

        ( Also I think the beginning of your Friday Photo text should be much more obvious and not just continue the general text.)

        [ And there IS that tendency that gear attracts more comments…]
