'Scene' outside Nottingham Broadmarsh Bus Station 2

Most of my images in Nottingham come from on the streets but on this occasion, I positioned myself at the Broadmarsh Bus Station.

 

Inside, it is dark and gloomy whilst outside, you are shooting across several lanes of traffic. Admittedly the traffic is light controlled but you do need to be quick.

 

All of the images in this blog apart from the last one feature buses operated by ‘trentbarton’ (tb).

This one is covering an i4 journey which is usually operated with branded Optare Tempo 2’s (See blog 5th. March 2015).
