As I secretly suspected, David Lam from the Trans-Continental bus photo site was out during the Games taking photos of the buses roaming around!

He just recently sent an e-mail with some highlights, saying he dedicated most of his time photographing the older equipment due for retirement soon. Click through to enjoy his picks — and visit the full gallery for even more shots of the soon-to-be retired buses. Thanks Dave for all the lovely photos!

(PS: Dave also has a gallery devoted to VANOC’s Olympic bus network buses!)
