Has anyone taken any photos of buses or coaches decorated for Christmas or with this year's Christmas lights as a backdrop?

Join the group to start a discussion!

Group Description


Welcome to the Flickr Group of Coach & Bus Week (CBW) magazine.

Our aim here is to celebrate the vehicles, operations, people, innovation and variety of the coach and bus industry, in a forum which will compliment our magazine and website:

Anyone can become a member of the CBW Flickr group – whether you’re an amateur or professional photographer – we’d love to see your snaps!

Occasionally we’ll showcase the work and talent of Flickr group members, by reproducing images in the magazine – often as one of our weekly 'Big Pictures', to help illustrate a feature or a news story.

We’ll also run occasional discussion threads and competitions, when we’ll be asking for photos on a specific theme or event. We’ll then select the best for printing in the magazine - usually as part of a dedicated Flickr theme feature.

If we print your picture we’ll let you know - usually via a discussion thread in this group, or by Flickrmail.

Every picture published in the magazine or online will have a credit - ideally with your real name, rather than your Flickr handle, if that‘s OK with you.

When you post a photo please include a short title (above the picture, as usual with all Flickr uploads).

Also, please feel free to add a short caption - about 150 words (more if you wish) please - in the description space below the photo. You could simply state where the picture was taken, or expand and say why you like the capture - or why that day, or place, was so memorable - or even write about what technique you used to get a particular effect - it’s really up to you, so long as it‘s not offensive.

One potential problem we anticipate is the size of images when downloaded - we need a certain size file to get a high enough quality to publish in the magazine, but there are restrictions on the size of file non-pro Flickr members can use.

To get around this, if we choose your picture for publication and it’s too small then we will be in touch, and ask you to email us a bigger file if that’s OK - one of our admins will send you a FlickrMail or we will email you from: peter dot jackson AT cbwmagazine dot com (replace dot and AT with . and @

I realise I’ve not actually said what the best sizes are for publication - but a rule of thumb is the higher resolution the better.

I hope this description is useful - please feel free to email or post a message with any suggestions or queries.

Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you :)
