Black cabs, mini cabs, trams and trains will join up my life and give me that feeling, once again, of being connected. I've spent so long off the grid - if I stay here much longer I fear I may end up pointing at aeroplanes. And I haven't even mentioned the buses. And buses that run after dark - that'll be a novelty: the last bus round here leaves before the Six O'Clock News. Talking about night buses, here's a book I found today - Nick Turpin's On the Night Bus is a stunning collection of nocturnal photographs taken over the last four London winters of, you've guessed it, passengers on night buses.
In the words of Rod Stewart: Every picture tells a story. Don't it?

One of the things I love about Brighton is that there are frequent night buses, a really good daytime service, lots of stations and no end of taxis. Of course I still bemoan the passing of the tuk- tuk service .......ReplyDelete
