People 7

I was thrilled to have caught him on photo because I have wanted to feature him in my people series for long time! Underneath that cool sunglasses is a model bus driver. He greets everyone of his passengers loud and clear, unlike robotic greetings you get from fast food service :D When you reach your destination, he bid a loud "viszonlátásra" (see you). How can I not be impressed? And does he remind you of someone? see here

hahaha you made me laugh this morning - good comparison with LNeeson ;)
did you tell him he was going to feature on your page, he is a star =)

kris said...

jazzy,
heheheh..i told him about the blog. not sure if he understands or not

alice said...

I do agree for Liam! Here many bus drivers are women but there is also a man who comes from Wallis and Futuna Islands, he is so large, so broad-shouldered, his face is always so calm...that I'll never find enough courage to take a picture of him!

Alice..its very strange to me to hear that your bus drivers are mostly female. Here its rare to see women driving buses. As you can see we have Jedi's for it:)

Olivier said...

tu as une star comme conducteur de bus. tu devrais lui demander un autographe pour ta photo ;o)) il parait que l'on a tous son double sur terre.

you have a star like driver of bus. you should ask him for an autograph for your photograph; O)) it appears that one has all double sound on ground.

Kate said...

Great photo, Kris. I think portraits of workers is a way to honour those who keep our cities going! Liam Nelson, hmmm. I kinda thought of Bono.

Lisi said...

Like Kate, I actually had Bono in mind as well...

Randy said...

ruth said...

I totally thought Liam before I clicked on your photo link. I like this post.

zannnie said...

:) ohh Liam Neeson:) wow! Besides his professionalism, no wonder you were so thrilled...;)

J. Andrew Lockhart said...

I love people like that!

kris said...

kate / Lisi,
hey yeah..with sunglasses he looks more Bono than Liam!

Thank you all for visiting!

Bill said...

It is amazing how much a little politeness can impact others. Thanks for the reminder!

Chris & Deb said...

my initial thought was "why is Ringo Starr driving a bus?"....
great story!

Nathalie said...

I don't take the bus much, more the train, but I have heard many stories of Sydney bus drivers of the eastern suburbs not being nice to foreigners who don't know their way, don't have the fare ready or generally don't understand. Shame, for a country that has so many immigrants. Your bus driver should indeed be complimented. He's a handsome man too, at first I thougt he was a racing pilot (because of the sunglasses I think!)

Jenny said...

I knew it was Liam Neeson before I clicked the link - amazing likeness! He lives near me and his children have started going to the same school as my kids - but I haven't spotted him yet!

Ame said...
