Feelin Groovy

Another unusual vehicle to add to my collection of auto images! This mini bus has been painted and repainted so many times throughout my life span. Its owned by a auto collision repair center just down the street from where I grew up, and every few years they give it a fresh coat of paint in hopes of luring newcomers through their door. This is the most extravagant paint job that I recall it having in all the times I have seen it, and probably the most suiting coat for the vehicle.

Short. Simple. To the point 🙂

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 🙂

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.
