Thanks! I wanted to emphasis the stem. Glad it came across well.I really like your choice to blur both foreground and background here. Although your stated reason was to mitigate distractions from the background, iI find it very aesthetically pleasing to have the focal plane on a single stem.
A very nice blend of mostly one color, varying textures and just the right amount of reflection.
Appreciate the kind words. I was disappointed, as the weekends is where I have more time available. Been super busy at work today, so I'm going to be challenged to get something today (or, in this case, tonight)...Paul, understand about certain days making it tough to shoot, and I think your subject selection was a great choice. I did the same one day with my fencing material, it has to happen once in a while.
Very clever. Yeah, school busses haven't changed in decades, or more!
It is even clean with reflections, a rarity!
Thanks Nick, Wade, and Andy. The buses are quite old, but well maintained. This depot serves several towns, including ours, and is reasonably centrally located for the towns.Looks shinier than any school buses around here, or any that I rode on as a kid. I hope your property taxes don't "reflect" that differential!
I look forward to the Hellboy story someday. Great subject.Day 29: Superman

Straight out at work today (still at it), so had to use one of my safety subjects. This is the name of one of my cars, as it is Estoril blue metallic and the interior is Coral Red, and it is quite muscular, so I named it Superman. My other car is named Hellboy, a long story...
