The inspiration for this theme came from a people watching moment at Richmond station in Melbourne. I noticed that the areas under cover were getting crowded. Mainly because thats where all seats are. People had drifted into the open area for a little peace a quiet (i assume).
But the thing was, though everyone was doing that “pretending no one else exists” (something I specialize at while using public transport) they were grouping around wherever there was a sign post. It was as if no one wanted to take the extra few steps to stand in a completely empty place.
I’m probably reading too much into it, but I still think of it from time to time.
