Krakow, 6pm to 7

More specifically, the Jubilat bus stop on the edge of Krakow, Poland’s old town center, during the 6 o’clock hour earlier this evening.

Todays Pic du Jour, the 160th (!) straight since the daily project was re-inaugurated, is the fifth selection for the 1 Day 1 World Project started by Lisa who blogs at Northwest Frame of Mind. The idea is to illustrate a ’typical’ hour each week from wherever you happen to be until the 24-hour cycle is completed in October. This week is 6pm to 7.

I’ve been on the road since last Saturday and until I reached Krakow the evening before last I was either busy with work or sitting on a train during the 6 o’clock hour. Below is the best of the batch from yesterday, a shot with tremendous potential: a little girl wearing a medieval dress costume, her hair in a tightly wrapped braid, trying to duck when she saw me preparing to take a picture of a Pope John Paul II display. Seriously, when will that sort of combination run across my frame again?

Unfortunately, my shutter speed was at least two stops too slow. I’m posting it anyway for posterity’s sake –and as a reminder for what not to do next time.

And finally, on this day from the Piran Café archive:

2012If you were wondering where the Northampton Transport Peace Bus Wound up.. (I found it. Parked in the hills about 20km west of Ljubljana. Take a look.)

    I’m particularly impressed by the reflection in the moving bus! great shot!

      Thanks Juls – I actually focused on her because she was wearing headphones, and I figured she was more likely to stay relatively still for a slow shutter speed shot than all the others who were tapping on their phones. And as for the project, this was taken at 6:51. So patience sometimes pays. 🙂

    I like the bus stop picture – it really captures that rush hour feeling!

      Thanks Karen – it’s probably on the short list of favorites from my recent spin through southwestern Poland.
