Weekly Photo Challenge: Split-Second Story



Ayutthaya was scorching hot and I was sweating profusely while waiting for the next train back to Bangkok. It was middle of October and yet, people at the train station seemed unperturbed by the heat. In my split-second shot here, I captured an emotionless middle aged woman with a medium black canvas bag staring straight at my lens. Perhaps she was thinking on who to contact once she reached Bangkok. Two girls fiddled with their phones and another lady facing the other side was on phone. Strangely the guy with earphones managed to have a heated argument with the lady with a mineral water bottle; with 2 dogs watching tentatively. Behind, a group of young girls lost in local gossips while enjoying their drinks. Only then I realized both my cousin with blue cap and my friend with black fedora returned from restroom, looking refresh and chatted animatedly. Our train arrived 40 seconds later, bound for Bangkok.
