Now I can't drive Lucy, I rather love buses and on a good day would love to travel on this. People are really friendly on buses.

Except, on this one, the intriguing thing is that it's empty. There doesn't even appear to have been a driver, despite it whooshing past!

Nice composition, and very intriguing photo. Has some mystery for sure.

Lucy thanks for visiting my blog...you happened upon my bento blog, most of my photos for the meme sites are on my Aqua Sunday blog.

I enjoy your photos very much!

Unique perspective on the bus.
I like to capture them but they
do whizz by.

Carver said...

What a great shot. I like all the elements, the empty bus, building, and flowers. The sky is also very dynamic.

Kitty said...

Only in the south of England do the people get open topped public transport! I don't like how this one's empty - like a ghost bus..

In answer to last week's question (sorry I'm so slow!) the handle on top of the cup belonged to a little tea strainer. It looked very old, I thought it was a lovely touch. I will never be happy in starbucks again after having drank tea from that shop!

And I admit that the first shot on my post, of the trees and the road, is definitely better in colour! I'll probably post another one from the same place in full fujichrome colour. I like my stone circles in b&w though :)

Woody said...

How odd it's empty, but it's a beautiful composition. Thanks for visiting my blog!

Dragonstar said...

What a strange sight - a ghost bus in daylight.

John said...

It will soon be too cold for the open top; nicely spotted and good viewpoint.

@nemonen said...

Lovely photo on the bus. Such a nice locking bus and composition in the frame.

Ewa said...

I like how the flowers are in the first plan, nice photo!

RuneE said...

The bus has done it job - it's leaving.

Cheryl said...

The brick building is what keeps drawing my eye.

Hello Lyndsey.

Isn't it interesting that, in the right light, something perfectly ordinary, like a bus going by, can seem slightly menacing . . . mysterious.

Hello Faye.

Yes, this was whizzing too so I don't know how anything focussed . . . it just did!

Lucy

Lucy Corrander said...

Hello Carver.

I like it that you notice the elements in the picture beyond the bus. They are equally important.

Hello Kitty.

It can be quite blowy on top of a bus like this, even in the south of England. Enormous fun though!

Lucy

Lucy Corrander said...

Hello Woody.

I agree, it's very odd that it's empty. It was heading towards the places of touristy interest . . . don't seem to have been any interested tourists wanting to go there that day!

Hello Dragonstar.

I hadn't seen it as a Ghost Bus until you suggested the idea. Now I can't see it any other way.

Lucy

Lucy Corrander said...

Hello John.

You are right. The open top buses will soon be put away for the winter. In theory, I miss them. In practice, going across a causeway on an open-top with an eastern wind blowing up the channel and rain pelting into one's eyes isn't an entirely pleasing experience.

Lucy

Lucy Corrander said...

Hello @nemonen.

Glad you like the bus photo!

Lucy

Lucy Corrander said...

Hello Ewa.

Glad you noticed the flowers. They were what drew me to this scene in the first place and I lurked behind them until something interesting came by on the road . . . then the bus turned up.!

Lucy

Lucy Corrander said...

Hello Rune . . . maybe it's left its passengers waiting because . . . this is the direction for going!

Lucy

Lucy Corrander said...

Hello Cheryl.

Glad you noticed the building. That and the street sign between it and the bus are crucial to the picture.

B/W always grabs me when done so artistically, Lucy.
