Feb. 12, 2022: Taking advantage of the early morning light, I stopped at the controversial bus transfer station at the north end of Pacific View Mall in Ventura, California. "Bus Home" by artist Dennis Oppenheim is a 36-tall whirling $2.2 million sculpture depicting a bus morphing into a suburban home.
Despite strong local opposition, the Ventura City Council approved "Bus Home" in 2000. The sculpture opened in 2002.
Over the last decade, I've photographed "Bus Home" several times. This time I brought along a converted infrared camera. For this image, I used a 720nm filter, 250th-second exposure, f/ 7.1 ISO 400.
This image is number 43 in my 365 days black and white image project.
My thoughts on images past and present.
