Sebastapol

Well This is the shot ive been dreaming of taking for a while as I spend alot of time on X24 bus. the guy was asking people to sing suspicious minds and telling people his BMW's were on the Drive at home. As a fellow passenger I hoped people would join in with the song lol,I Had about 40 secs to my stop,unzipped my bag whacked it to F2.8 and shot we had eye contact and although I didnt ask him directly I gestured, Its about capturing the moment and being brave enough to shoot in strange conditions.IM actually proud of myself:-) This is my bravest effort yet in my 100 strangers series on Flickr:-)People on their way home from work. you gotta be brave take the shot engage your subjects:-) I love this>>>>>!!!!!!!

Thanks to anyone who has looked at any image in the last few months. I no longer comment on pbase as time wont allow. I still post out of an unbreakable habit. So many changes and uncertainties in my personal life, not enough hours in the day.Thank you anyway.Its always nice. When im through this dark period who knows I may get back into pbase. IM fine and my dark stuff is just my creative side,As the few people who know me closely know the real me:-).

Cheers Ade nos da Wan an

Great capture Ade I understand the feeling this photo gives you. We'll miss you here! Happy sailing and take care! Best, Jeroen

You really can be proud. I know what are your talking about. In such enclosed place it's technically might be even dangerous to shot like this. But it's worth it. Great shot Ade. Vote.

Understand how it can be....I love the capture here and hope things go better for you in your personal quests and trials. Make sure to stop and breathe every now and then and know you don't walk alone.

This is why events unnerve me,
They find it all, a different story,
Notice whom for wheels are turning,
Turn again and turn towards this time,
All she asks the strength to hold me,
Then again the same old story,
World will travel, oh so quickly,
Travel first and lean towards this time.

Oh, Ill break them down, no mercy shown,
Heaven knows, its got to be this time,
Watching her, these things she said,
The times she cried,
Too frail to wake this time.

Oh Ill break them down, no mercy shown
Heaven knows, its got to be this time,
Avenues all lined with trees,
Picture me and then you start watching,
Watching forever, forever,
Watching love grow, forever,
Letting me know, forever.
