East Coast Touring

Fung Wah bus transport. The best thing to ever happen to East Coast travel. In my humble opinion. It’s even better when you have a tired damsel on the shoulder, missing the view but entirely satisfied after a day on foot.

This is a total double-subject photograph – we have the skyline and glorious clouds at back and shadow ridden bus transport at front. There’s some highway in between, but the real magic is in the interaction between fore and back. I’m speaking primarily of the dirty windows and their streaks of dried water residue.

It’s these streaks of dots that somehow integrate into the grids of windows of the skyscrapers behind. It’s not entirely fluid, but there’s some similarity.

For me, the clear memory is in the fore. Give it ten years, I’ll appreciate it then.
