Scenes from a train
I think taking photographs from moving vehicles, trains, cars, buses, planes, opens up new opportunities to explore what can be seen. Unless the vehicle stops, the movement will provide challenges to produce sharp images, not to mention desired compositions, but then that’s not always what is required. These photographs are all from (Amtrak) trains and I have written about the technicalities of making photographs while dealing with dirty windows and reflections. While we might envy the faster trains in some other countries, the pace of Amtrak gives more opportunities for making photographs. I feel that sitting, or standing, ready with a camera means you are paying a lot more attention to the countryside you are passing through, and whether you take the photograph or not, you are still seeing more.
I have a parallel project scenes from trains & buses from North America.
