I took this shot today while working on my A Streetcar Named Aspire longitudinal photo essay, and then got to thinking–what exactly does loitering mean? According to the dictionary, to loiter means to stand or wait around idly or without apparent purpose, or to travel indolently and with frequent pauses. Synonyms include dawdle, dally, stroll, amble, saunter, meander, drift, putter, take one’s time, dilly-dally, and mosey. Um, that would be my typical workday. Welcome to the world of the writer/photographer. A loiterer by occupation.
