The Morning Commute

The Morning Commute, Panasonic GX1 with 7-14mm, 9mm, 0.6 seconds, f/22, ISO 160

On my way into work this morning, it was a dreary day, but the sky was lighting up in front of me.  As traffic was light, I grabbed my GX1 with one hand and just rested it on the dash.  I rolled the aperture to its smallest, waited for an overpass and ‘click’  – I got exactly what I was after on the very first try.  Plopped the camera back in the bag next to me and continued on.

I don’t recommend shooting while driving, for the record, and I very, very rarely do it, but the conditions this morning seemed just right, and I didn’t need to concentrate on the shooting much, as I just had my ultra-wide on and I was able to crop to the framing I wanted in post, rather than concentrate on exact composition and distract my eyes from the road.  In fact, I didn’t even need to take my eyes off the road.  Ultimately, it worked out and I got the shot I was after….a record of my morning commute.  (click to enlarge):
