I'm not the only one who falls into melancholy on an evening bus ...

Very nice shots Hugo....I particularly like the third one with the framing provided by the two passengers and the lead-in line down along the top of the bus comaprtment.

The expressions are fascinating aren't they!

Nice to see your BUS pictures again. The camera is great for this kind of pics, no mirror, just tilted LCD:-)

I like the second picture best.

Sorry Hugo, I looked around, no edit button. I meant "What time was it when you took these pics?"

Must be the fumes? :o)

I learned never to sit at the back on the lower level, or the front on the upper level, when using the bussed in HK, due to lack of oxygen.

So brave you are to photograph strangers Hugo. In London I'd either be given the 'evil eye' or someone would start verball warfare with me. (People seem friendlier outside the UK I always notice).

Nice captures BTW, I do enjoy 'reading' people, and capturing them unaware is a great way to achieve this.

Take care,

Ian

Thank you all for stopping by and leaving such warm words... reading them makes my hectic day (and night) a lot easier to go through!!!

AWLP: You have a lovely enjoyable blog... glad you love HK and RTHK so much. I listen to RTHK night or day (mostly Radio 4) - I'm a fan of classical music...:-)

Helena: Thanks so much for the encouragement!

Bramham: Thanks for the positive comments. They mean a lot cause I always admire your composition talent and skill... really happy that this one came out even better than I could have expected.:-)

Danny: As said, I really didn't expect these images to come out so well. Just take a look at the exif (shutter speed) and you'll realise why I said so... These were taken around 7:30 pm in the evening. But I wasn't on the way back home yet - two more sites to inspect that evening. I couldn't help falling into a state of melancholy...

Smith: What a pity. I always thought London would be a fantastic place for street photography... People here are either more friendly or simply too engaged in their own business to care. Anyhow, the cam was placed at the waist level (making use of the flippable LCD to compose), and people didn't seem to notice they're being photographed at all...

Thanks again and best regards,

Hugo

Hi Lion,

It's nice to see you stopping by. Thanks!

"Shy?" I've overcome my shyness pretty long time ago, but I must add again that I'll stop shooting even the slightest objection is expressed...

See you and take care,
Hugo
