This traveling bus/home was in the parking lot of the Mega Store in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico,and reminded me of the flower children years where hippies roamed the country in buses much like this one

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.

    Excellent Phil! Did you see the Partridge Family? I’d love a bus like this.

  • jordan,
    I think I saw a few of their faces through the cloudy windows! Certainly in my minds’ eye!

    Quite a reminder, Phil, of a era seemingly gone by. The last one I saw was a short school bus with a short ‘cabin’ built on the back, making the total length about four feet longer. It had two windows, a door and a two steps down. There were painted flowers all over, peace symbols, “LOVE” and curtains inside! Some really bumpy times in social transitions… fer shurr, dude! Great capture, Phil. :-)

    a flash back for us old folks! When I try to share these gems with grand kids, their eyes just roll up into their heads, (not unlike I did when my father tried to share his times…an icebox with blocks of ice, coal poured through a cellar window,and a man who came around with a small cart to sharpen scissors and knives)

    Nothing is new is it? This is an excellent shot

    although I never owned one, it was kind of a flashback moment to see it
