West Campus Living, University of Texas – Austin, Texas

It’s been years since I’ve seen a Volkswagen Bus. I spotted this on Guadalupe Street, right across from the University of Texas campus. Shot about a month ago, when I was testing out my latest camera, the Canon G7X Mark II.

I kind of equate the VW Bus with the 60’s counter-cultural movement. Mainly from photos and news footage. Though I was born in the 1960s, I don’t consider myself a product of that era. I probably most relate to the 80s in terms of cultural identity.

I recently saw that VW is planning to re-release the bus, an all-electric version, with a goofy name called the I.D. Buzz. It looks fully modern but echoes the original styling. Of course, I’m sure the new bus is considerably larger to accommodate our current super-sized needs, along with the superior crash worthiness.
