Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #215: Planes, Trains, and Automobiles… and the Places They Take Us


John from Journey with Johnbo leads this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge with the topic of Planes, Trains, and Automobiles…and the Places They Take Us.

Despite airplane travel is my least favorite mode of transportation – the hassle of the TSA and airports – I love the view out of airplane windows. I’m not sure why that is. Maybe it’s because I’m looking at the world from a whole different perspective – a perspective where I’m not on the ground.

The photo on the left was from my trip to Las Vegas last July. This is Lake Mead, which I’d imagine might be looking a little different this year. Meanwhile, the photo on the upper right is somewhere near Chicago and the lower right photo is somewhere over the Pacific.

I haven’t travel much by plane but these three definitely in my top favorite photos out of a plane.

As much as I hate being the passenger in the car, there are so advantages like getting to take pictures without worrying about looking at the road.

The upper left photo was taken on the way to Vernal, Utah. I was searching for photo composition while my uncle was at the wheel. For a while, there wasn’t any great composition but then I saw it in the clouds. Then the photo on the lower left was also taken while my uncle was at the wheel. The sky was gloomy and cloudy that day and I later found out that it had rained the previous night.

The photo on the right was actually the very first photo I took with the new lens. I wanted to test its zoom capability so I pulled the car off to one side, opened the window, and shot the picture. Though it didn’t fully test out the “super zoom” feature of the lens as the photo was taken at 55 mm, I think it turned out pretty good.
