Through a Bus Window, Clearly

Click image to view at 800 pixels wide

This is another reflex shot -- see it, frame it, shoot it. I usually try to snag a top front window seat on London busses, especially if it's the type with a single-piece window (no structure to cross the image), so I can constantly scan the city for great images. If I'm lucky the windows were cleaned before the bus began the day and there'll be minimal marks to potentially intrude on the image, though there are some reflections toward the right side of the frame that let you know it's a window shot. I believe this is Marble Arch, though I don't know London well enough to be sure of all its monuments. This shot is special because there's no motion-blur, the framing is squared-up well, and the loss of contrast through the glass was also easily tweaked digitally. November, 2007; Fuji FinePix S5600, automatic. Image by Mike.
