At the Bus Stop

It was early morning and I was looking to catch the bus home having wandered around some of the old docks. The bus indicator let me know that the next bus was due in a minute. Many other buses passed and while the indicator now read ‘Due’ there was no sign of my bus approaching.

And then a lightbulb moment, looking down at the pavement, a cigarette butt, flattened chewing gum and a pool of muddy water I noticed an opportunity for the camera. No, really. Of course as soon as I had pulled the camera from the bag the bus rolled into sight so I had to be quick.

It was of course the reflected bare limbs of the tree that caught my attention along with reflections of the bus shelter. When the bus came closer I stepped back, the water was stirred and the picture gone.

    1. Art times I also find it positive not to have the camera and simply absorb all the aromas, sounds and sights of a place before working out how to best reflect it. This is particularly the case when travelling to new con tries and cities. MM πŸ€
