    There's something magical about people watching.

    Viewing the hustle of a crowd and knowing that everyone that passes has a different destination, a different story, just different everything. It is breath taking.

    I like watching people because you can learn a lot about a person just by really paying attention to them.  I watch people everywhere all the time.  But then it has been drilled into me by my dad.  He always said, "Always be aware of your surroundings."  And I am.  I pay...

    I see you, bad man. I see you.

    You watch. You read. You analyze between the lines; maybe even the words. What do you want to say? If I peeled away all of our bullshit anger, what would you truly need to know? Do you care about what is going on in my life? Do you care how things are going? Or, do you simply...

    People watching is so fun,

    i once had an assignment for my college writing class to people watch and just make up stories and conversations I thought they might be having. It's just interesting, especially when you someone do something they think no one sees.

    person by watching their actions and body language. Especially when their actions don't match their words.

    I love just watching people - trying to work

    The best places to watch people
