View From the Bus

On the bus, the world passes by in a screeching, grinding, halting, stopping, speeding, lurching manner.  Might is Right around here and there is nothing bigger than the busses.  So, the busses rule the road and they take full advantage of their size to get from stop to stop as quickly as possible. 

The world outside of the bus is always busy, bright, on display, and on the move.

There are:

  • signs
  • banners
  • flags
  • posters
  • stores
  • restaurants
  • sidewalk markets
  • sidewalk food vendors 
  • people walking
  • people sitting
  • people selling things
  • people buying things
  • people watching people
  • people eating
  • people talking
  • people talking on their cell phones
  • people texting on their cell phones
  • trees
  • flowers
  • weeds
  • garbage 
  • apartment buildings
  • bus stops
  • traffic lights
  • cars
  • delivery trucks
  • bicycles
  • scooters
  • strollers
  • umbrellas

When I took these pictures I did not try for perfection.  Some of the pictures are blurry and others are clear.  A bumping, speeding bus can produce some interesting challenges for picture taking. 

Here is a look at the streets of Gwangju, through the window of a bus.
