Painted Bus

Painted Bus | Washtucna, WA | June 2019

In retirement I’m more alert to things transformed. People and objects that have found new uses — new paths, new purposes — prove that vitality lies ahead. For decades, this derelict bus (in a field at a rural intersection) has served as a public canvas for travelers with an urge for expression. Someone painted, “I’m here. What now?” All I know is that the road goes thataway.

[The bus sits at the junction of Highway 26 and 261 in Washtucna. The interior, above, attracts as many spray painters as the exterior, below. Click here for more info.]
