PEOPLE 281 – GOING TO WORK 25

 

 


.

The morning bus to work, just before sunrise.  Darkness, dirty windows, most seats taken, the bus stiflingly hot  – but at least it was a Friday, and Christmas the day after next!

Earlier images from this series can be found here: 1, 2, 3, 45, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 1213, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23 and 24.  Each will open in a separate window.

Click onto the image to open a larger version in a separate window, and click onto that image to enlarge it yet again – recommended.

Technique: D700 with 70-300 Nikkor lens at 300mm; 25,600 ISO; Lightroom; Temple Gate, central Bristol; 23 Dec 2016.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    Almost robotic sitting there in rows being transported to work. Such an apt comment on the ‘commute’.

    All lined up, grim, determined, and framed. Beautifully framed, with nice colors around, but it was lost on them.

      Grim, determined, that says it. I loathed the journeys to work and was usually semi-comatose on the journeys from work, but the seeing of potential images here and there helped not a little – photography can be very therapeutic.

      Daniel, so do I! Retired now, I’m very heartily glad to be out of that world, but I do like photographing it – a spectator maybe. Looking back, I do think five days on and two off to be quite a punishing schedule; at one time I worked very long hours so that I could take every other Monday off, and those three day weekends made a significant difference.

      • i’m not fortunate enough to be retired but not living in the country & having a different routine certainly brings feelings of nostalgia & thankfulness that i don’t have to endure such misery. i’ll never forget how difficult it was to get up & go do that. Lordy.
        Great photograph by the way Adrian, nice symmetric framing & the atmosphere of the colours really puts me on that bus.

          Daniel, thank you very much, I’m glad the photo gets to you – that’s very encouraging! Yes, I recall the willpower needed to get up and get to work – and then on the grinding journeys home again, I was usually so tired that I fell asleep! A 🙂

This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
