Waiting for the 210 bus to Archway

On a very cold but sunny London day, when nothing works particularly well the 210 bus took longer than usual to arrive. Passenger were patient, pacing blowing into their gloves, smoking… Anything to not feel the freeze. It wasn’t the right time to start making a painting with a forefinger.

Winter in the UK, though not as cold as other parts of Europe, always seems much worse. People aren’t often ready for a cold snap! No amount of discussion about the weather in the UK transfers to a state of preparedness. Strange.
