Bus Casuality on Manners Street

As I was coming back from getting lunch I noticed a group of people clustered around someone on the footpath. As I got closer it turned out to be someone who had just stepped out onto the street without looking both ways (day 3 of the new road layout where buses go both ways on a previously one way street) and was hit by a bus.

Lets just say that this was a really hard image to take and I think this comes across in the image itself… it probably didn’t help that I was shooting 50 ISO film… but I think the camera shake adds some anonymity to the image.

Rolleiflex 2.8 E, Ilford Pan F 50 ISO Film, Canoscan 9000F Scanner.

    It’s not a hard concept. New layout. Look right, then left, then right again. We learned it as children.

  2. Maybe it was all down to muscle memory with brain only looking left? Im guessing it was probably a lesson hard learned judging by the amount of blood on the sidewalk 😦
