We discuss antibunching of photons in terms of the distributions of waiting between successive photoemissions and compare it with definitions of antibunching based on the two-time intensity correlation function. We illustrate our results for photon sequences emitted by parametric oscillators. Curves are presented to illustrate the behavior.
