Greg and I have a pretty good system worked out when we go on road trips. He drives and I don’t. At least, I don’t drive very much, only when he is really tired. I don’t mind. I don’t mind driving, mind you, but I don’t mind sitting in the passenger seat either. On road trips, especially when we get off of the Interstate, I have my camera armed and ready.
Over the years I’ve found that photos taken out of car windows usually suck…to put it bluntly. But, I’ve gotten lucky now and then. I know I can’t take a spectacular landscape when we are moving along at 60 mph. I just snap things that are interesting to me and when I get them home, I make the decision as to whether or not they need to be tossed into the virtual garbage can.
Sometimes it’s an old barn, sometimes it’s a faded sign, sometimes it’s just an interesting curve in the road. There’s always something worth seeing if you look out the window.
