!!*Photography* Challenge Group!! Happy Holidays :-)

This group is all about Themed Photography Challenges

At the bus stop

This challenge closed almost 5 years ago.

The Challenge

People (or other live creatures) waiting at the bus stop, day or night, colour or B&W/Sepia. Bus stop sign or shelter must be visible (bus only does not qualify, and neither do trams). The emphasis is on the ‘waiting for the bus’ or at least making (decent) use of the shelter.

As close to straight out of the camera as possible please. No composites at all. No superimposed images. This is the photography challenge group NOT the PhotoShop challenge group. Thanks!

WORK THAT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A PHOTOGRAPH WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED, even if it originally started as a photograph!!


  1. as usual, please, no insects, arachnids or butterflies – thank you! (shouldn’t apply here, but…)
  2. also, nothing that requires a safe filter, nothing that you wouldn’t show to your grandma or to a 5-year-old (I shouldn’t have to say this for this subject, but we had some surprises…)
  3. no writing on the images, this is still a photography challenge group, keep images with added writing on them out of this, thank you (unless, of course, the writing is part of the subject)

Judging / Voting Criteria

Please vote for your favourite(s) that fit the theme, as many as they are. Every vote counts!

Additional Information
