    Default Bridges

    This pic was taken with a cell phone through a car windshield. Ya, you guessed right - I'm not a professional photographer.

    Anyways I really like it and thought I'd share. It is the bridges between Canada and the USA at the Sarnia, Ontario to Port Huron, Michigan border crossing. That day was so freaking hot & humid -- I think it shows in the atmosphere.

    Love it.
    I wish the car on the right was cropped out, the road gives a great leading line.
    Wish I had an eye for these shots, you either see them or you don't. I like the repeating patterns.
    Nice shot. Cell phone or DSLR, makes no difference, its the shot, not the equipment.

    I did a watercolor of that same bridge in exactly the same spot.

    (This is a smart phone app called Waterlogue. Another great app is Prisma both are available for iPhones and Android phones.)

    Wow that's a scary big coincidence.

    You know the distracted driver laws were written for people like you. I was bad to take a pic while driving but you take the cake -- doing a watercolour painting while driving!

    Yeah, but check out the app. They also have a desktop version for Windows so you don'y have to do it whilst driving.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.
