Mission Ten: Waiting Game

Train your patience with this Mission. Find an interesting background and wait for people, bikers, cars or animals to populate it. Show us different variations of the same background with something different in front of it each time.

Submit your photos by tagging them Waiting Game. This Mission runs until Sunday, December 11, 2016.

Here are some photos to get you started.
