I didn’t spend much time in the galleries on my most recent trip to the Getty Museum with Sean. Instead, we spent most of the warm January afternoon exploring the impressive gardens, finding the best views of the city and people watching.
I love watching people from afar, especially couples deep in conversation. I make up my own discussion based on facial expressions and body language. This guy seems distant as he looks off in to the horizon. She’s making an effort to get closer. Maybe she’s trying to convince him or reassure him of something. Perhaps she just told him that she was admitted to grad school up north, but their relationship will be okay. She’ll visit often. Or maybe she just asked him where he wants to have dinner or which exhibit they should visit next.
What do you think they’re talking about? Do you make up your own stories when you people watch (if you do so)?
