"You know they used to laugh at me because I wouldn't ride on all those double-decker buses, because there was no driver on the top"

    I must say that Saint Joni has a point. I'd never considered how dangerous double-deckers must be until now. And what about those trains they have in The Netherlands with two levels of seating - shouldn't they run on two sets of tracks?

    This shot was taken at rush hour. I am quite pleased with how it turned out because I was right on the edge of a main road and buses were coming past in packs of three or more. Often they came to a stop right in front of me because of traffic queues. I lost the nice light on the left of the image as a result, but overall I am pleased with the result.

    Note to self: always start a 360 on something that is not going to move!
