Daydreaming in the bus

This is another 'drive by shooting;' a photo I took from my car window (Yes, I was waiting for the light to change!) I like the contrast of the women's expressions with the cheerful yellow and musical notes on the outside of the bus. Looks like only on the outside of the bus is there a smiley face!

Another great serendipity shot. I think "daydreaming" best describes the facial expressions...they don't look angry or sad, necessarily, just pensive, like they're considering all the things they have to do when they get wherever they are going!

With regard to your question on Ocala DP - that's one of the many "cut outs" available in the last few versions of Photoshop. Very easy to do. I think these things lose their effectiveness if used a lot so I do it sparingly.

They certainly don't look as if they're having a ball. The older woman looks positively grim!

Was this taken early in the morning? :~}

Great capture! I love the drive bys. Sure looks like the bus is the only one having fun for sure.

The city is really trying to bring joy to everyone. There are a lot of cheerfulness on your urban pictures these last weeks even if it is not on people's face.
I don't remember having been joyful myself on the way to work or back...in the public transportation system.

Indeed, the yellow smiley face on the outside is the only one present. Very interesting shot, Bibi.

They sure look like they are happy to reach the end of another day.

End of day commute? Squashed in .. reminds me of the NYC subways at evening rush hour .. sardine cans on wheels
