On the Buses / by Simon Mooney

A couple of weeks ago I entered a set of pictures in a street photography competition with the theme of 'Hometown'. For the last year this has been London and more specifically Stoke Newington. Looking through what I'd taken while wandering the streets and learning the area, it struck me how many of them were shot on buses, usually travelling up and down the Kingsland Road. Previously, I lived in Soho for six years and hardly ever got on one. Now it's the tube that's the exception. Buses are full of life and are a constantly changing frame for what's happening outside. Even though most of the work I do is either an advertising set-up or football match, street photography keeps me sharp technically and always looking for a picture.

Here's some of my favourites.
