The images in this Zine were taken on the 42 Bus in Manchester between 2012 - 2014.


I had picked up a foot injury, which made street photography almost impossible.

I still wanted to take pictures.

I had the idea of hopping on the bus and pointing my camera out the window. 

I didn’t have to walk and I had a fleeting yet fabulous view of the City.


The 42 bus route  passes through one of the busiest bus corridors in Europe. 

The mile stretch along Oxford Road has a timetabled bus of every 30 seconds

.. in both directions. 

The 40 minute journey was described as ‘chaotic, stressful and unpleasant’ by the 

Parliamentary Transport committee.. and I couldn‘t agree more.Infacrt, 

Focussing on the other side of the window is the healthiest thing you can do!


The 6 mile stretch between Didsbury and the City Centre connectcs the 

Suburbs with Universities, Hospitals, The infamous ‘Curry Mile’ in Rusholme

as well as Parks and Churches that just about made it into Morrissey lyrics.
