  • Planes
  • Trains
  • Car/automobiles
  • Bus
  • Bicycle
  • Motorcycle
  • Boat
  • Scooter
  • Sailboat
  • Cruise ship
  • Skateboard
  • Rollerblades
  • Etc. and the list can go on and on . . .

Weekly Photography Challenge – Modes of Transportation

That leaves it pretty wide opened for you this week. You could shoot traffic on a busy street, try some panning, freeze or stop the motion by choosing the appropriate shutter speed, take a bus or train and shoot from inside, just for a few ideas.

    I wasn’t planning on participating in this weeks challenge, but our first spring-like day here in Northern Ohio inspired me to pull my bike from the garage rafters after a bland winter. I snapped this picture before taking it down. Not the best, but in honesty I preferred to peddle rather than compose so it will have to do!
