The man clutching his cell phone seemed to be waiting for a call from work

After exiting the alley, I found myself in a rather large street with trees planted along the side of the road. But there were few people on the street. It was a peaceful street. As I was thinking about whether to go right or left, I noticed a man sitting on the side of the road.

He was lazily leaning against the guardrail on the side of the road. He looked as if he was waiting for someone to come and not doing anything. As I approached him, I saw that he was clutching his cell phone. He seemed to be ready to respond immediately whenever he received a call or a message on his phone.

From the look of him, I guessed he was a motorcycle cab driver. The motorbike in the background was his vehicle, and he was relaxing on the side of the road, holding his cell phone, waiting for work to come in. If that was the case, my first impression that he was waiting for someone to come and doing nothing was not far off. This man was not doing anything, but waiting for a call or a message.

The shoulders of his polo shirt were the same color as the guardrails as if they were aligned. When I pointed my camera at the man, he gave me a gentle smile.
