oh, the joys of slow travel
like waiting on a bus
waiting for things to happen
if they happen
This picture was taken in Kalumanai, a minor town on the east coast,
during a stopover on our way from Batticaloa to Ampara.
Public transport in Sri Lanka is rather efficient, by the way. No worries there!
On the road again...

Very nice composition, the buses seem to be moving back and forth.

colourful shot...with the blue lady breaking the red main tone of the buses!

Une image parfaitement réalisée avec la présences de ces autocars.La tonalité douce du ciel crée le bon contraste avec ces bolides.La cerise est cette dame habillée de bleu avec un jaune complémentaire sous sa main gauche.
bravo et bonne soirée

Your title made me laugh. Though - is there anything more enjoyable to ride such a technically experienced bus - between the locals, with their spices, gear, chicken..... etc?
Thats a really nice post and a great note.
Thanks for sharing this.

nice shot with good exposure controlled & sharpness...

The lady in a blue sari is perfectly placed gainst this row of red buses. The colours stand out very well, isolating the buses against the plain landscape and sky beyond. Very well seen and taken.

This is a meaningful capture with woman walking in front of parked buses. Are they in some kind of strike or this is the parking area of buses. The blue sari against the red buses contrast is nice. Nice composition.

At least when you have to wait for hours, you can take some pictures, if, of course, something interesting ;D
I can feel the heat on this picture! The lady in sari is more than welcome to animate the scene. The red buses made for a fine BG!

I like how you've composed this. The row of red buses as a backdrop to the woman in contrasting blue...cool shot.

Leuke foto met die Indiase Tatas,mooie kleuren,ik vind dit typisch een foto voor de nat-geo,beetje journalistiek.

Realistiche e surreali .
Sembra una contraddizione linguistica ..invece riporta l'impressione che provo vedendo le tue belle foto .

Hello Benny. Bus station. A woman dressed in traditional costume in blue pass. In this photo, everything is reduced to the essential. Thus, the photo gets a subtle charm. Well seen and presented. Rgds, Wolfgang.

B: I like your composition and scope. It's simple images like this that make me want to take pictures and travel again. best, c

This reminds me to a bus station somewhere in Cambodia.
Even without the woman in blue dress it would be a good composition with good colors and contrast,but she makes it perfect.
See you here again after christmas.A lot of things to organize in my job and private.
I can`t wait to leave the plane on saturday at about noon in Bangkok with 34 degree +......and arriving in Yangoon the next day at about sunset,passing Shedagon pagoda on my way to my guesthouse.....I can see my first icecold Myanmar beer
All the best,Leo
