Bus station art, Coro, Venezuela

We spent one year backpacking around the world between March the 15th 1999 and March the 15th 2000 with eight and a half months travelling around South America. The bus station at Coro was uniquely decorated although the buses that were running looked as if they were not much different to the parts hanging on the wall.

This is one of eight photographs that we made into a set of blank greeting cards. It was taken on an old Canon A1 35mm camera using slide film. The cards are available from our Etsy shop, https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/JunagarhMedia.

This is the list of photographs and the images are shown below:

When the train comes to town, Bex, Switzerland

The Swiss have a brilliant public transport system and it’s so much cheaper than rip off Britain. This example may mean that it’s a little inconvenient for car drivers but in a sustainable future private car ownership will be for most of the 7.8 billion plus inhabitants of the planet a thing of the past. 29th August 2011.

Paris – A vision by Anne Hidalgo

I’m a big fan of Paris, it’s a wonderful city, but unfortunately like so many others it’s overrun by private car ownership and use despite having a brilliant public transport system. The Champs-Élysées is a great avenue and space but for most of the time it is clogged with cars. I saw Miguel Induráin win one of his Tour de France races there in the 90s, an amazing event with it is thought a million people watching. This should give you some idea of its size.

Thankfully, Paris has a visionary mayor who wants to convert the city into a city for people and she, Anne Hidalgo, has this incredible plan for the Champs-Élysées. Other cities need to start following her and start converting such places into places for the many and not the privileged few, https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/pariss-champs-elysees-get-green-makeover-180976737/?fbclid=IwAR0cj53g1eVGftGgNjb-XAiGRI572mgpFub9wtz_DIgJTN74ramvlYsWpP4.

Time for many to ditch the privately owned car

Renault Twizzy

Over the last few decades our town and city centres, depending on where you live in the world have been overrun by larger, heavier and faster cars and usually very unsuited for where they are being driven. The cities have been taken over by those healthy enough and old enough to drive and not too old not to be able to drive. This has been to the detriment of everyone else in terms of their health and their safety. Take for example the British mini that rolled around London streets in the 60s, 70s and 80s and compare it to the rather larger vehicle that bears the name today. Going back the SUVs and blingmobiles of those trying to show how important they are just didn’t exist or if they did in far fewer numbers. Thankfully some forward cities are making plans to make them liveable spaces for everyone again where they become green, clean and safe for old and young, pedestrians, cyclists and all forms of public transport users. Barcelona is one such city and it is building what are called Superblocks where it joins several blocks together and only essential vehicles can enter at slow speeds Superblocks plan. In this scenario private cars still exist and are parked underground whereas for a sustainable future they will need to be replaced by shareable vehicles such as the Twizzy for short town and city journeys if not using the other forms of public transport.

Slowing cities down but speeding them up
