Shooting out the windows


I often shoot photographs while moving at the speed limit along the interstates. When you flash by a field at nightfall that shouts paint me, driving to the next exit and looping back isn't practical and by the time you get back, the light might be so different you wonder what grabbed your attention to begin with. These glimpses of opportunity at speed don't last long so I keep a digital point-and-shoot camera on the seat and shoot without using the viewfinder. The results are unpredictable but I get the occasional shot that plants the seed for a good painting.
