Lonely Ride


While the Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District does not prohibit photography on the bus, I try to avoid it nonetheless, lest a misunderstanding get me thrown off anyway. Sometimes I do miss great moments; I remember one time when a gentleman several rows in front of me was posed in a striking manner suggestive of great strength in repose. I was much too timid to ask to take his picture. Perhaps I should have.

I made an exception for the image above, as it was impossible to resist capturing three people building cocoons for themselves in three different ways. I held my X100 at chest level and used the rear screen to compose the image.
