City Coach

A friend found a line of old city buses at the edge of an auto salvage yard. Surprisingly, they gave us permission to explore and photograph them. It looks like they date from the 1960's or early 1970's (though that is just a guess).

SONY SLT-A77V 1/1600 second F/9.0 ISO 200 75 mm (35mm equiv.)

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.

It makes a fine subject. I especially like the peeling loss of paint. A fine close up.
