This photo was 100% luck.

I tried to replicate this shot under the next few overpasses (sitting in the passenger seat, going 65mph) and got nothing. Overexposed blurs, underexposed blurs, blurs that couldn’t figure out where to focus, blurs with glare from the windshield behind which I was sitting, etc. etc. etc.

Someone else in my position might get frustrated that her lucky shots often have as much merit as the ones with careful attention to exposure and composition, but me? I’m a casual snapshot photographer anyway, so it doesn’t bother me one bit.

….okay, I’m a little annoyed.
