Great capture, Lowell! It is "too close for comfort." :)

It brings new meaning to the phrase: "objects in the mirror are closer than they appear". Being run over by a school bus would kinda stink. It's a very clever shot, Lowell! I always look forward to seeing what you'll post each day.

Yes. I have an american school bus in one of my images too. Just a small one.... :)

Happy weekend!

It's that close that you could probably hear the kids on the bus?!

Scary indeed!!

It's better to have them in the rear view mirror than in front, if your in a hurry.

The tree in my photo today is not a fruit tree. It's some kind of ornamental but I don't know the name.

School bus drivers should not tail gate. We never had seat belts on school buses when I was a kid. I don't know if they have them now.

Aha. And you're driving, right? :-)

School bus in the mirror - good composition and idea. Here I needed a bit of heat from Florida. Have a nice Sunday! Peter.

Remember . . . things are closer than they look. Or is that vice-versa?

All those loud little voices screaming. The little darlings.

Ugh! I can hear the kids yelling, can't you? The bus driver was probably turned around in his/her seat to see who threw the spitball, slammed on the brakes just in time. . .just in time to keep the kid in the 3rd row from whacking the head of the kid in the 2nd row. . .No, wait! They're quiet, perfectly behaved, and looking forward to starting their homework. Objects in the mirror aren't as close as they look.

I hate to say it, but this is a normal sight in Manila. You wouldn't want to drive here. Most Filipinos say they're good defensive drivers. I say they're offensive (in both senses of the word) drivers.

Did you have a new car? I saw red car!
