LUAS in transit

Still on the wide angle lens and no better use can be made of such a device than to take photographs of people in the city. When getting off or on buses, trams or trains, people don't usually care about unimportant things such as cameras! No time to be self-conscious when the object is too important - it might be getting home in the evening or, in this case, arriving for a night in town. What might it be - meeting a friend or an evening class? I can see a passenger with a brief case and another person has already been shopping. As I've observed before, we seldom dream about arriving - more often we are leaving, or trying to get somewhere. But these people have not yet reached their destination so they are still in transit. Doesn't an old saying go something like "It's better to travel hopefully than to arrive".
