I have been sick for two weeks now and I haven’t been able to go out and shoot photos lately. As I lounge on the sofa or bed, trying my best to recover, I have been playing around with some of my older photos. One technique I have been toying with is making poster art.

I like these posters and thought that others might like to see them as well. Let me know what you think. Today’s theme is “Passenger Service.” (NOTE: The first 4 photos were shot on an iPhone 3GS!)
