This really catches the hustle and bustle and the rain for once is a bonus.

A cracking composition, wonderfully executed. Great sense of movement in the otherwise stand still transport chaos.

This really captures what it's all about......congestion, bustle, indifferent weather, short days and the OOF pedestrians adds to the sense of last minute activity.

Yes, the "one legged ghost" is an enigma. Doesn't look like there is a door to enter for her.
You have captured the hustle and bustle of the city beautifully.

Nicely captures the hustle and bustle, and the cold outside juxtaposed with an inviting interior on the bus!

Hope your Christmas was all you wished for.

The urgency of Christmas shopping and all the commotion. So well captured, at night and in the rain too. Guess your camera lost it's memory re: date........Sandy
