American Pride

I haven’t messed with these images because for some reason I hold them special.  They aren’t spectacular by any means.  They just hit a moment when I was fed up with shooting people and wanted to shoot anything but.  The area we were in to me was depressing and I was on a bus full of people that I knew I would end up shooting so between stops I just pointed the camera out the window and shot what I saw going by.  There isn’t anything overly technical about the shot as we were on a bus moving between 40 and 50 miles per hour.  So the camera just became my eyes and I just fired one shot after another as the miles rolled by.  To be honest 90% are blurred but the ones that came out strike me.

I turned them black and white and this one has a hint of color to it.  I added the film grain on purpose to give it the shot in film look.  The window reflection gives you added detail and depth that otherwise would not be there.
