For thirty minutes he read. The rustle and the bustle around him, the trains, the swift passing of fellow commuters, the sounds, smells and sights did not distract him from his reading. It gave me a happy moment to see a book in our electronic lives. Everyone else had a digital device and were connected somewhere else. He was there. Right across the train line, leaning on a pillar and standing nonchalantly immerse in a world only he understood. He was present in his own absence. I watched him for about 20 minutes. Then I got the camera out and connected myself to a mission of trying to capture this moment. To have a Kodak moment of what life used to be in a train station with long waits.
