London Bus Tour from moritz oberholzer on Vimeo.

A London bus tour with a difference: scenes of street life captured through the window of a bus.

I love travelling, the physical act of being in motion. Even more so if I’m not in the driver’s seat, and can gaze out the window and let my mind wander. I find riding the top deck of a bus particularly soothing, looking down from above on the day to day scenes that make up our lives. A simultaneously detached and yet somehow participatory form of voyeurism.

This video of quotidian city life shot from a London bus is beautiful, meditative, and – in a way I can’t quite put my finger on – poignant. I think it captures a sense of our existence both as individuals, and within a wider matrix of relationships.
