Bus Stop

ISO 100 41mm f/11 1/80sec

With the fresh snow on the ground from last nights dusting I went for a fun and frigid photo walk around the block this morning. It was actually a very fun walk as I passed by my neighbors who were happy to see me because it meant they could take a break from shoveling for a moment, catch their breathe and send a warm hello and wave my way. As i made it around the backside of the block and was heading my way back home I was stopped by a van full of elderly Jehovah’s witnesses and a driver that closely resembled Morphius from the Matrix. I actually didn’t realize they were Jehovah’s witnesses until after our conversation when I looked at the literature they insisted I take. I did however manage to talk the driver into letting me take his picture πŸ™‚

At the corner rounding back towards my house theres this little bus stop bench, and I’ve been wanting to get a good shot of it for some time now. I’ve taken a few pictures of it before but the dirt and grass from the ground draw away from the bench to much, so I was very pleased with the way the snow helped in setting the bench and overhanging tree apart from the rest of the scenery.

I dont know if this is actually used by children, being the school is literally 2 blocks away, but I wish I had this at my bus stop as a kid. We used to stand on a sloped driveway in the snow, slowly sliding down towards the street hoping not to fall on our asses in front of our friends when the bus got there.

  1. Great shot. Simple, but depth in the sense that I want to know the story of the bus stop (i.e who sat there, where those people are now, etc)

    • I agree, there seems to be an untold story in the scene, as if it were a to be continued. Like when the kids would be waiting for the bus, we are now waiting for the kids. haha. Thanks for your thoughts πŸ™‚
