Inspiration: The look of "waiting" is a rather poignant one. Expectancy and impatience mixed with a little anxiety. People who are waiting for something or someone rarely look at ease unless they are doing something while waiting - such as reading.
By the way, it rained like crazy yesterday - intermittent heavy downpours. In fact, a few hours after I took this shot, he and I went to Lucien in the Lower East Side for dinner. On our way back, the sky opened up and all hell broke loose. The streets were practically flooded. Even with umbrellas, we were totally soaked when we finally found a cab. I have to admit that running through the rain with him from shelter to shelter to cab was quite fun and funny. I almost lost my flip-flops in a giant puddle in the middle of the street.
