Saw this wonderful scene at a station in Chiba. Looks like the 2 drivers are enjoying a game of Shogi (sort of Japanese Chess) whilst waiting for customers. The guy in the cab chooses to read a paper and keep cool. Not sure what the bucket was for? Maybe the loser gets dunked with the water ^^
Here are some more angles on the game.
What are taxi drivers up to in your part of the world when they are waiting for customers?
I took this with my Canon G10 camera. It is a little heavier than a Nikon or Panasonic, but I always get great results from the photos without having to carry around my heavy DSLR. Maybe I should get hold of the new Lumix or Olympus and see how results vary.
Good pics of everyday life !

From when I’ve seen them usually at the airport, they just stand around and shoot the breeze. But when it’s busy they scramble for passengers. Those 2 look like they are just trying to relax and enjoy the day waitng for customers. I don’t know if they get paid by the hour or only when they are transporting passengers.
It sure is a nice way to wait for passengers.
