End of a hiking day… After a gorgeous day hiking along little dikes around a nature reservation, immersed in glorious spring, you find yourselves at a bus stop. It will be a little while before our bus arrives.

Quite often, there’s a lot to see around bus stops, but this one is on the motorway, not much traffic passing, and pretty much all there is to see is the crash barrier, the tops of a few trees, and the top of one roof. Oh, and one crusty streetlamp that couldn’t quite stand up straight any more:

But wait! A bus stop itself can be visually interesting… Look down!

So while waiting for our bus, I amused myself shooting a little series of bus stop details. The raised lines (and dots) are part of accessibility features for the blind signaling where the bus stop is, and the curb.

Having to wait does tend to bring out my creativity. ;) See the Frustration creation series for another example of this! But before you so so, look at the other images in this series: the samples below all link to their respective image pages.
