Another take on my ‘London Through a Window’ project. Taking photos thorough bus windows into the buses is surprisingly difficult. During the day, the interiors can be very dark compared to the light outside and so getting an image that doesn’t just look a bit murky is a challenge, and at night the bus windows reflect the lights from outside.
I picked Oxford Street to take these – mainly because it is full of buses and they have to drive very slowly or stop for quite a while so there are a lot of opportunities for photos. The downside is that there are lots of brightly lit shop windows which reflect in the bus windows and obscure the faces of passengers.
But I got three decent shots of interesting people – mostly younger women. In this one, I like the way the light shows up the smudges on the window from where people have leaned on them.
