London Omnibus

(1/1)

rcarca:
Puts me in mind of Flanders & Swann: The big six-wheeler scarlet-painted London transport diesel-engined 97-horsepower omnibus. Except they were talking about the older version and I suspect the engine is a little more powerful now!

When cabbies try to pass me before they overtakes,
I sticks me flippin' hand out and I jams on all me brakes.

Enjoy!

I like the middle shot the best because the sidewalk and surroundings (including the iconic red phone booth) were included and interesting.  Now about those trash bags on the sidewalk... ::)

Two things: it is funny what you almost ignore when you live somewhere! I almost do not see the red telephone boxes... And the rubbish on the pavement - disgraceful, except that is the time shopkeepers are told to put it out for collection. I have to agree that it looks awful, but I am not greatly inclined to remove it by Photoshop, preferring a degree or reality.

Thanks for the comments

Best
