The Wheels On The Bus...

...Aren't going round! Not on this bus anyway. I spotted running repairs taking place to this broken down Stagecoach bus on Pitville Street. That guy under the bus is a mechanic and not someone who has been squashed! There weren't any passengers waiting on the bus, I presume they had been transferred to another one, so at least Stagecoach didn't have to deal with irate customers!

Oh dear what have we here. I'm apologising in advance, I can't contain myself any longer. I know what this image is, but with the innocent nursey ryhme title and the (imagine) macabre scene palyed out I am thinking David Lynch Movie. The best images are those you just find and have the scavvy to catch.

I'm just relieved this wasn't an image of a horrible accident! Whew!

Arghh, that song hadn't been in my head for a long while.

he looks kinda squashed to me, are you sure? =)

Talk about cramped working conditions. I always wondered if they have a hi-lift to change out wheels.

Good Lord Marley, I"ve got to quit trying to look at ate portal without my glasses. The wheels on the bus go squish squish squish is what it looked like. Glad the chap is ok. Good one!

Ouch - a superb photo, Marley...I just don't like seeing anyone UNDER a bus. Maybe the "wheels on the bus" will not go on PITville St. any more. :)
BTW - the song was a big hit with my son in preschool - I can remember allll the verses & we had a very nice picture book with moving parts (wheels, windows, wipers...) - I enjoyed this post very much, as you can see

Ooh, very dramatic, even though actually what he is doing is very mundane! Well spotted!

My first thought was blood and guts. Happy to see this is not the case. Great capture.

Hard to believe he could do anything with so little space.

Ineke said...

it doesn't look as if he can actually do anything like this
