The Central Bus Terminal in Panama City is a huge building which serves as the starting point of all buses traveling to the countryside.  When it was built, everybody thought it would be a “white elephant”, meaning it would be a vacant site for many years.  They were proved wrong.  During the national holidays its capacity is completely saturated.  The place is filled with endless lines of passengers anxiously waiting to buy their tickets.  As the city population increases, an extension of the transportation complex is mandatory.

To increase revenue, the administration decided to hire space in the corridors of the building reducing the space for the flow of people during the rush hours.  Greed always wins at the expense of the consumer.  But that’s another story.

This post is about a color photograph of the transportation complex during the early hours of the morning and how the picture was modified with a digital software to make it look different.  Thus the title of the post, the metamorphosis of a bus terminal.  I can’t conceal how happy I am playing with my Birthday camera.  Here we go.

The original picture was modified with a new sepia filter. It certainly looks different. Photo by ©Omar Upegui R.

I love black and white photographs. If you look closely, you will find a white moon somewhere between the two palm trees. Photo by ©Omar Upegui R.

Photography is like drinking salt water, the more you drink, the more thirsty you get.  I’m looking forward to upgrade my camera next December.  I hope this wish comes true.  Good Day.
