26.5.09 - Waiting

I had to go into town this afternoon and I was trying to think of somewhere that I hadn't photographed for the Dailies before, then I remembered the Bus Station. It is years since I traveled on a bus, preferring to use the car or walk, and this shot reminded me of why I don't like buses. I hate having to wait around, I just like to get up and go. The environmentalist in me knows that I should use buses much more, but the pragmatist in me just knows that there aren't enough hours in the day. Anyway, I used my watercolour technique to lighten this up a bit and bring out more textures in the roof. This isn't as "pretty" as my recent Dailies, but it is about time I featured some people in one of them!
