San Salvador, El Salvador. Route 30.

A lot of bus routes recently have started installing monitors that play music videos throughout the journey. This time they were non-functional, so the passengers took the entertainment in their own hands. Sometimes technology breaking isn't so bad, and while everyone usually enjoys the music from the monitors, everybody seemed to enjoy listening what these 2 guys were playing.
Another slightly difficult photo that turned out not to pose as much challenge as I had hoped. For this this photo even though the windows are overexposed, I chose to pull back the highlights just a little bit and leave them bright for effect as it is. The photo turned out with a high contrast, but not so much that it would lose any fine detail.

I like the lighting and contrast in this one. It's just enough that you can see the reflections on the wood paneling up top, which I think is pretty cool. It's got a sort of retro feel to it, and I would love to be in a situation like that xD

All the buses in El Salvador are really retro, from '70s/'80s and some even from '60s. They have introduced one new route with a new bus like 2 months ago only.

Wow, I think that's kinda cool. Things in America, and even the people, are so hung up on how fast they can advance and be "the best," but to me good and old-fashioned will always be the best.
