The 554 to Issaquah

Posted on | Shot on at 18:00:00

Shot of a Sound Transit Bus, the 554 to Issaquah specifically, while wandering around the edge of downtown Seattle and Belltown looking for a particular store. Gorgeous July day, bright blue sky, whispy clouds. Awesomeness.

  • interessant use of blue color to compose the picture…

  • a fine day to go shooting.. nice street capture.. :)

  • Excellent shot I wish we had a decent bus service here :)

  • lots of interesting lines here – in the buildings and the street grid. i know the bus is parked but all the angles in this image say – ready to go.

  • That bus is not a usual “transit”. Let me explain my crazy thought :) – The bus is a transit between the sky and the building. How? The bus uses the colors of the skies in the cubical shape of the building thus connecting the geometry of the photo with it’s colors.
    Well.. At least that how I see it :)

  • Cool shot, it has great lighting and color.
