Routemaster 60

You do not see many bus photos on my blog. I really prefer trams! But I spent many happy holidays in London over 20 years and simply fell in love with their Routemaster buses. In July 2014 I attended the RM60 event at Finsbury Park in London. The Routemaster Association celebrated the 60th birthday of Read More

Istanbul impressions

Photography is difficult as it is not allowed in the stations and there is a lot of security. I had no problems away from the stops but some of the lines offer very few photo Read More
