A departure from the usual format; I suspect most people will recognise the location, so this is more of a 'Where's Wally?':

Standing just in front of the further bus stop. Or on top of the bus, looking for nuts and Topic bars.

Tuesday had come down through Dundrum and Foster Avenue, brine-fresh from sea-travel, a corn-yellow sun-drench that called forth the bees at an incustomary hour to their bumbling.

Found another picture online of that bus, a Bristol KSW. From the front turning into Staple Hill Depot.

You're obviously not the guy looking thoughtful stood under the near bus shelter - as you have conveniently labelled him the car park attendant  Grin

He's very good, isn't he? Yup, that's me.

This was the 'farewell to the KSW's' tour. I may be able to find the precise date if I dig deep enough. I think YHT924 may have been out that day too. I seem to remember going round Shirehampton Green three times, and quite a struggle getting up Allison Road...

It wasn't exactly Sherlockian deduction. I've met you and you do rather tower over us mere mortals. Tongue

And I suppose I also, obliquely, got the reason for the photo. Finding another image of that KSW from 1976.

And the flares; either homonym would seem appropriate. I would have picked the right option had I got up earlier.

As an aside, my niece has a Facebook album of pictures where on looking back, she has spotted her dad hiding somewhere, almost, but not quite, out of sight. It's called "Where's the Wally".
