Not bad for a one-handed, one-eyed shot on the move... while driving over the bridge, eh?Violence UnSilenced

T and S said...

That's the riskiest way to shoot a photograph, you have done well, but I m not sure if its worth the risk.

Asha said...

HeHe! Guilty here but I did that sitting on the passenger seat though while distracting the driver to go slow while clicked. We do get the best photos on the move! Good one.
Oh, I clicked a Peach shaped water tank in SC.

Beautiful shot! Moving objects or taking photos while moving is one of the biggest challenges for me. I'm hoping to learn. The sepia effect suits the photo very well. Have a great day :)

Mojo said...

Had there been any other traffic on the bridge at the time I wouldn't have attempted it, but since I was out there by myself the shot was just too good to pass up. But there's no stopping on the bridge, so shooting it on the move is the only way to get it.

Wow! excellent shot, Mojo! BUT you must be careful driving and photographing... it's dangerous! Happy Sepia Scenes! :)

Bryan said...

Quite nice for a shot while driving! From the angle it looks like you would have had to take the shot through the windshield unless you drive a convertible, but I don't notice any of the telltale effects of that kind of shot.

Unless....Mojo, do you have really really long arms?

Annie said...

Another naughty person taking pictures while driving. We're soooo bad. LOL

You rebel you ;-) Really great shot, nice and clear and not blurry as if you were going fasttttttt.

Terri said...

It looks like the beginning of suburbia. Nicely done!

If you're shooting-while-driving, you might be interested in a new meme I'm considering starting:

I am glad there was no other traffic on the bridge and you were able to get this photo. I am partial to photos from bridges and I am guilty of taking pictures while I have been driving but only on quiet rural roads. Have a wonderful weekend!

Daryl said...

Setting a bad example! But getting a really good shot!

dot said...

Wow, you're pretty good with the camera while driving! That's a beautiful sepia scene. What I want to know is how you always get to be first on the list????????? lol

Your EG Tour Guide said...

It's amazing what people will confess on their blogs, Mojo. But I must admit it's a darn good photo. ;-)

Ralph said...

So it was you that crossed into my path the other day. You dawg! (nice picture, BTW)

Greyscale Territory said...

The dip of the road adds so much character to the view of those buildings on the hillside! Great shot!

Patti said...

Nice perspective here, with the "dip of the road" adding a lot, as Greyscale said.
The buildings look great in sepia.

Be careful driving and photo-taking. Could get dangerous.

Third try in sending a comment so sorry if there are 3 comments from me. :)

Great job taking the shot!

Tricia said...

Not bad, indeed! Hope no other cars were near you though.
