The Drive-by


In a perfect world, we would all have the time and conditions to set up our shots and wait patiently for the stars aligning moment. But this isn't a perfect world. Sometimes getting the shot is a 'now or never' situation which does not include parking, assembling, and hiking in to make it happen.

The images I've included were all shot from or through a vehicle window. Three were shot while the car was moving... one at 70 mph.

So, get creative. Roll down your car window, feel the wind in your hair and snap away.

    Can so relate to this. I've taken so many drive-by-shots, especially during the years I lived in Italy. Sure gets my vote.

    Deb ~ No surprise that you are shooting this way too. Sometimes, that window shot is THE shot. Bottom line, always be packin'. Thanks for your drive-by. Much appreciated.
