Burning down the bus

NIKON D70 - 1/400 sec, f4.5 at 70mm

On the way home tonight there was a small amount of excitment on Oteha Valley Road. A Stagecoach bus was well on fire on the other side of the road. There was people everywhere and cars parked all over the road, everyone gawping at the Fire Brigade.

I wasn't really in the mood for stopping after spending the entire day driving and walking around southern Waikato so I just drove right through. Although when I was at the stop light I thought I could get a photo in the mirror. I was on partially correct. I blame the light going green so I only had one shot at it.

I'm a batchelor for 3 days. The geeks are all down in Cambridge. In the old days being as batchelor was good. It invariably involved tittie bars with the geeks at the office, many consecutive days of take out for dinner, and washing and ironing clothes at the last minute. And don't forget only running the dishwasher 15 minutes before Gabba walked into the house.

  • You ironed your clothes as a batchelor? Hell, I think 90% of batchelors these days can't even remember to brush their teeth let alone wash their own clothes. I'm impressed! btw...nice shot!

  • I brushed my teeth too today. I guess because I did all that stuff, that would make me the ideal man huh?

  • The "ideal man" bathes and puts the toilet seat down as well as brushing teeth and ironing clothes :-)
