Bus Stop



Viron Sub-Station

As I have said in the early posts, I went to La Union last week to give my dad an early visit to the cemetery and to check out the Surf Break as well. Whenever I travel there, I always take Viron Transit because their staff are courteous and friendly, and their terminal closest to our house was just a bus ride away. During the trip, there were three stops, and my favorite was the one in the province of Pangasinan.

People call this "Sison Bus Stop," but the truth is, it's still Pozzorubio, although the town of Sison is just a few steps away (as seen on the arch outside of the bus stop). This is the bus company's largest sub-station, and usually, this is where the driver and the conductor eat their heavy meal, so we spent time here for more than 30 minutes, enough for me to take pictures.

I was actually on my way back to the bus when I saw this sight and immediately took out the camera. I just liked how I can see the two names of neighboring towns as well as the tree. When I was a kid, I have always fantasized of taking pictures of this kind of tree whenever we go to La Union; now I am doing it for real.

Hello ! and thanks for visiting Trieste Daily Photo. I really like what's under that great sky. The bus that kind of "hut" the car, the big tree....a beautiful composition!

Fantastic shot of the cloudy sky with the bus as the subject. It adds the perfect effect to the picture.
Have a great weekend.

Thank you so very much for your visit!

Not had the chance to explore your site yet, but must say your SWF post looks very much like our autumn skies here in Connecticut. Lovely photo, and what I've read of your blog, I like!
