‘The Bus Came By..’

To be perfectly honest, as a general rule I don’t find ‘public transport’ a particularly interesting subject for photography. However, as this subject has come round again in Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge it gives me an opportunity to post this picture, taken in downtown Sydney.

As an image, I admit it doesn’t really have much to offer, but if you happen to be a Deadhead it raises a smile, assuming that you are familiar with the lyrics of the Grateful Dead’s second-set improvisational vehicle (sic), ‘The Other One’:

Escapin’ through the lily fields
I came across an empty space
It trembled and exploded
Left a bus stop in its place
The bus came by and I got on
That’s when it all began
