Rosa Parks Herself on a Seat Like This

Back Seat No More | 28mm, f/16, 1/10 sec, ISO 6400

I went to the Southeastern Railway Museum again on Saturday with my friend Eric. Besides trains, they have several older buses, tractors, cabs, etc.

Not only did I like the composition of this interior bus shot, but it made me think a lot about the beginning of the Civil Rights movement. One woman, taking a stand (or in this case, taking a seat at the front) for what was right. Who would have thought that something as simple as a bus seat could shake the foundations of society? It just goes to show that one person can make a difference. It might not shake foundations, but the effort to do the right thing is always worth it.
