    Two young ladies and two men stand waiting on the side of a decommissioned train that used to carry thousands of commuters daily between Shibuya and Sakuragicho. The spot at Shibuya Station has become a favorite rendezvous point for lovers and friends to meet in recent years. These people are most likely wondering if their dates will come and meet them on time. Their facial expressions indicate various levels of anticipation and anxiety. Date Time Photographed: 2016-12-21 13:47:09.

    Image Time: 1:47 PM The notion of a “waiting game” is intelligently captured in this photograph. The gestures and expressions of the four people biding their time, each in their own separate worlds, are intriguing.
