During clicking people and their life, I found Public Transportation terminals as the most crowded place in a city. And I tried to click people coming from different places from different cultures in a railway station or Bus terminal and plan for different destinations to go. They come from different frames and they do their journey in the same frame. This attracts me a lot so I tried to click different stories through the different windows of Train compartments.
I see people are getting more times when waiting for the train to start. And they spend this time watching other people just like I do while traveling. Some read newspapers to waste the time, some keep watching outside through the window as they never saw the world like this. As this never happened. I see the world through their eyes. I see people sleeping and capturing other people’s seat and at the same time, I see how some people share their seats and doors and windows when they don’t get any seats to sit.
I see how people start to know unknown people and gossips with them before their journey starts. I see how elder sisters are taking care of their younger. And mothers are taking care of their children. How a father is taking care of his whole family. On the other window, I see some woman sitting alone as the child of the other window also sitting alone. And the daily struggle of service holders. How the street hawkers and street food sellers spend their life around the compartments selling their goods and foods to the passengers. And how people wait for an endless journey in railway platforms.
