First True Busfanning Shot

201002211.jpg

 

2/21/10. Not as good as I wanted it to be, the white balance was off big-time (set for the fluorescent lamps in my living room). I didn't take any more out of fear of being seen, and I put the camera away a bit too early, so there is a slight blur.

 

Are these fears justified? (In other words, how likely are you to be stopped by someone busfanning vs. railfanning). If not, I can take plenty more photos next time.

 

I saw this same exact bus (4210) again yesterday, right in front of 4209. Too bad I didn't get a pic.

Yeah, it's really sad no one has made use of that building yet.

 

As a matter of fact there's scaffolding in front of the building now... I wonder what store is taking over it... That building's been dead for the past 12 years, it's about damn time!!

Aside from the white balance, the only thing that you could have improved on is that the bus could've been cenetered in the shot better. Otherwise, great shot. You shouldn't be afraid of taking pictures of buses as you're even less likely to be stopped taking pictures of buses than of trains. People on the street generally don't care, and on top of that you're allowed to take pictures of anything on the street since it's public property. The worst that can happen is that a bus driver asks what you're doing, then just tell him what you are doing is just a hobby and show him the directive/(MTA) rules if he asks further questions.
