Reflections on a Bus (photographs)

          Whenever I’m on a train or bus, I soon become aware of the interplay of scenery with layers of window reflections. It creates a collage of multiple illusions. During my recent trip from Toronto to Montreal on the upper level of a double-decker bus, I photographed some of these reflections.
          If you enjoy the slide show below, have a look at a different kind of bus reflection in my post “The Bus Driver’s Hands.”

Photos: The Bus Driver’s Hands

I took the photos below while on a Greyhound from Toronto to Detroit. The ceiling’s reflective surface gave me a funhouse-mirror view of the bus driver’s hands over the big steering wheel. I’d left my books in my luggage, so the reflections helped me while away the otherwise dreary bus ride.

Anniversary of Kristallnacht

Buchenwald-Dora Memorial, Père Lachaise Cemetery, Paris

The day that I visited the memorial, a crew was laying camera tracks for a documentary film. The tracks, ending at the memorial, unintentionally added a layer of horrific realism to the scene.

I dedicate this photo to the relatives of my partner, Jiri, who were killed in the Holocaust, and to his mother, Lilly, and his daughter’s grandmother, Dolly, who survived.
