PEOPLE 249 – GOING TO WORK 15
January 14, 2017 12 Comments
Just before sunrise, and the morning bus to work grinds its way slowly along Victoria Street, in central Bristol; 2 Dec 2016.
Here are the steamy windows of winter transport and, upstairs, three ways of co-existing with them. The blond on the left has wiped her window to see out but now turns her back on the outside world, preferring to talk to someone perhaps, or preparing to exchange the warmth of this collective and moving womb for the sudden chill of daybreak’s reality. How many times did I wish that the morning bus ride to work world go on and on, warm and safe, forever, and that I’d never have to get off???
The woman in the centre has wiped her window, and stares disconsolately out.
The man in front of her has let his window mist over, and is now staring ahead, lost perhaps in thought about the day ahead, anticipating his boss’s whims perhaps – or are the whims all his own?
And downstairs, below the advert for Christmas cheer, a single, misted face.
