The winner of the side mirror photography contest is Sarah Reagan’s photo, “Texas Road.” Sarah gets to choose between a $100 gift card from either Amazon or B&H Photo. Congratulations Sarah!
Shot with a Kodak Easy Share camera, Sarah’s photo gives credence to the point I’ve made numerous times – it’s not about the camera – great shots can be had from inexpensive cameras. A little reminder of that: Great Photos from Really Cheap Cameras.
There were many captivating entries.
Shots whose background had no similarities with the reflection, like this photo of Monument Valley from Rex Nemo, were particularly interesting.
Pure beauty shots.
Some showed the contrast inherent in many a road trip – that between the modern conveniences we flee and the peace and tranquility for which we press the pedal.
This from Karen Mallette. “During the same trip through the Southwest, we stopped at the McDonald’s in Page, AZ. As we got ready to hit the road again, I noticed the contrast between the “human” of the building, and the “Godness” of the red rock in the rear view mirror.”
More than once, the words “changed my life” were with the submission. Music to my ears.
The pet shots were fun!
And this from the ultimate road tripper of all – J.R. Templeton, a hitchhiker, and a vanishing breed.
Shots that remind us of our own “last views”. This one brought back a few poignant memories for me.
And a reminder of why we road trip – FREEDOM!
