Theme Day: Shelter


I slipped across the city limit into Scottsdale for this theme day post after remembering the very unique bus shelters that are located all around the city of Scottsdale.  This one is made up of the artistic iron-work and river rocks.


If you need to wait for the bus, it's nice to have some shade to protect you from the sun and these shelters which are all uniquely different make the wait a little more fun.

You definitely need shelter from the sun if you're waiting for a bus in Arizona. I'm glad somebody decided to make them attractive rather than those metal shed-like things that most cities have.

Nice composition on that first shot Sharon.

When a bus shelter is not just a bus shelter! How fantastic Sharon, they're like little urban works of art.

I hear that wait might be a bit longer today. That is a unique one!

The most unusual I've ever seen!

A comment from Randy!!

I like these a lot. And they're not going to blow away. Furthermore, they won't be easily stolen!

Truly beautiful. Almost might motivate one to take the bus.

What an artistic use of the gabion principle. Very clever!

Kate said...

How wonderful in live in a city where art is taken so seriously that it is used for utilitarian and everyday, commonplace objects and places.

William Kendall said...

Very different! I really like the concept!

Lois said...

How interesting! So much to look at while waiting for the bus.

I was afraid all I'd see this month would be bus shelters. But if they look like this, bring 'em on!

I forgot theme day yet again. Your images are wonderful.

Most rewarding picture.
Most of the bus shelters in Phoenix/Scottsdale/Tempe are beautiful. I started to take pictures of them but never finished the task :-(

VP said...

Quite strange, but really eye-catching!

Jack said...

Really! This might be the finest bus shelter I can remember seeing. Great choice for the theme.
