[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this photo today, after washing the winter "muck" off of my bus. It looked so nice and shiny I just had to get a photo.

This is the first photo I've taken of my new bus, I've been driving this one for about 1 1/2 years now.
I spend around 22+ hours a week in this "OFFICE" with 18 preschoolers, and the balance of my 40 hour work week in the classroom with them too.
Just thought I'd share a little more about "Me" with this view of where I spend most of my time.

The views are lovely though, and the company great, you always know what a preschooler thinks of you!

I've cropped and brightened, increased contrast just a little, and then resized. I didn't sharpen at all, I didn't think it needed it, and then saved it at 66% JPEG file to get it to the right size....

I'm having a terrible time with this new camera! I'm either going to have to change the resolution I'm taking the photos or something! What's the point of having a 5mp camera if you have to degrade the image so much to get it to fit on TL??

Wow, Lori !! I cannot help you with the technical stuff (maybe you can put question in forum ?) but I love the picture with your note ! I would love to drive one of these (just for once, I think). How many preschoolers do you take in this bus ? Must be tiring, and then on top of it you have them in the classroom too ? Wow ! You must have nerves of steel !

Sorry I ran out of points today already

I do like those North American school buses. Over here they just use any old bus to drive kids to school. These things you can see - especially after a wash like that. Thanks for sharing. I'll put it into the theme group Diana and I thought up on "offices" (And do read my intro to the theme - this may not be a 747, but almost).

Hi Lori, a very nice photo of your Office, good angle, nice play of light, and a tiny bit to much cyaan. Still much more adventure then I have.

About 5mp photo's, you get the best results at high resolutions, in PP work, detail, large prints, resize to lowres etc. But most important, altering and upsize a lowres photo is much more a terrible result. When the photo is highres there are always -lots- of things you can do with it.

Think about this: when a photo is taken, the moment is gone forever.

Ah yes, a nice clean bus is a welcome sight to a supervisor's eyes, lol! I have 2 mini-buses in "my" fleet in Naches and both are equipped with lift/wheel chair stations. The other 18 buses are big ones ranging from 65 to 84 passenger. Of late, my drivers have been getting enough decent weather that they have been washing too. We have so many rural, unpaved roads in our district that the thawing road surfaces don't permit the buses to look clean for long. My compliments to you for a nice clean bus and after close examination, I see no missed spots! ;o)

God's best,


School bus drivers rock!!!! I'm the daughter of a bus driver :)


Shiny and clean. You must have worked hard on the shine. Great angle, but I think the bus needs a bit more space all around it. Perhaps if you stepped back a few feet. The colours are good. (I thought Tim might enjoy this photo). Check out his 'bus' photo if you have time, as I know will interest you.
Sorry, out of todays points allowance. A+
