AS A PASSENGER I thrived (or did I throve?) on taking pictures of people at bus stops as we drove past. No more, now that I occupy the driver's seat. These are just a few from my collection, nothing to brag about, but a slice of life that I find interesting.
I've not used public transportation much myself and when I have, it's always accompanied by worry that I won't have the right change and the driver might have to bark at me. I've seen it happen.
We've ridden atop a double-decker bus in the heart of London and on various tour buses in our travels, which doesn't quite count.
This stop is on an island in Montrose. Beyond the bridge you can see the hospital we've been frequenting.
I find the structures interesting and the benches and even the ads, and of course the people waiting for their rides.
I find it a poignant sight to see someone running for a bus that has just pulled away from the curb. It's a good test of how compassionate the driver is.
Sedentary soul that I am, I guess I just like to see people on the move or in the midst of going somewhere.
From our apartment windows, if I look far, far away I can see 2 different freeways against a background of the mountains and the ant-like stream of cars and trucks signify travel even if it may simply be a routine commute.
