On the road

Last October I went to the East and West coast of the United States. It was a group travel and we had a personal bus and bus driver to go from city to city. We drove by beautiful locations and magnificent scenery but weren’t always able to make a picture stop due to our tight travel schedule. Making pictures in a moving vehicle was definitely not easy, but I managed to take some shots I’m very pleased with.

I decided to keep the pictures unedited. As an unprofessional photographer, I knew in advance I couldn’t make perfect pictures in a moving bus. But I was so happy with the result that I find the flaws (e.g. dirt on the windows, reflection) in the images charming; they don’t bother me at all.

I wonder if there are other people or even professional photographers who practise the art of taking pictures while on the move. Love to see those shots πŸ™‚

Loved taking pictures of the road @ West USA. Streets in Belgium are so dull in comparison πŸ˜‰

Had to zoom in quite a lot to get this composition. Very hard to avoid blurryness when zooming in!

Car trouble... But what a view!

Definitely one of my favorites!

    Love the one at the bottom of the road cones – the way they lead your eyes, but I also have a thing for train tracks….some sort of symbolism of the trip ahead. Nice shots.

    Very nice photos. It makes you want to go. I hope I can do so one day.

  6. This trip looks pretty awesome! With gorgeous landscapes and amazing roads. I hope I’ll have to do it myself some time in the future. The shot of the railway is very cool! It’s not even blurry! I know it’s hard to take photos from a bus. I’ve done that myself and it’s not convenient at all. It’s easier from a car when you are on the front seat. I laughed when I read your caption about Belgium streets. I felt the same when I was in Canada (I’m French). I felt like I was driving a big toy on a big unreal road lol.

    • It’s really worth doing, I recommend! Hope you’ll have the chance to see it with your own eyes πŸ™‚ Ah so, from France? Donc vous parlez le franΓ§ais. πŸ˜‰
      Haha, about the roads, I guess you can say ‘The grass is always greener on the other side’ πŸ˜‰
      And thanks for visiting!
