People Watching

In the country, one can enjoy bird watching - but in the city, the best kind of watching is people watching.  I watched a lot of people coping with the fresh snowfall today, like this woman crossing an unplowed road. I like this way the pattern of tire tracks in the snow form a abstract background as she navigates her way across the road.

This woman was picking her way down a winding path that seemed a bit slippery. Her coat looks so red against the rather bleak white and black landscape. 

Later, I saw this woman studying a menu in a restaurant. She looks so thoughtful. I wonder what she is thinking of ordering. 

These two women are waitresses in a Sushi restaurant. I really liked the brightly coloured kimonos they are wearing. It was a cold snowy evening, but it looked like one could feel transported to a whole other place if one went inside.

Great colours and poses - I agree - good image resource for drawing and painting!
