Blues Combi

In Lima, a combi is one of the transportation daily used. There are little, unsafe, small, drivers runs, some are tuned up like the one catch upon El Ejercito avenue. This trip is the first taken after almost a year lockdown also because my car was in mechanic. So have to be unique. At night 10:44pm, after waiting 20 minutes, this combi was the only one seen getting to the bus stop, so raised my hand and get in it. When it started while was sitting on a tiny seat the light changed. Blue with some ultraviolet inside I been looking through the window searching neutral light, in between darkness… with uncomfortable sight cause by the effect of a noisy palette of blue light feeling… like a lab, party or covid time. So thought in music, for 15 minutes while was getting nearby home. Only shoot two photos.
