passenger seat

the bus ride from mendoza to santiago was probably the most beautiful drive i've ever been on. we crossed over and through the andes, on winding mountain roads. i struggled to photograph it satisfactorily, my bus seat wasn't the best viewing point, so you'll have to trust me when i say it looked amazing. i took a few 'blind' shots where i pointed the camera towards the road behind me and clicked away. the framing didn't really work in any one shot, but there were elements that i liked in a few so i cheated and combined three photos together. this is probably frowned upon in the photographic community, but i'm not bothered by frowns, i prefer the way this looks now. i kinda had michel gondry's music video to the chemical brother's star guitar in mind when i was putting it together too. here's to another year on the road.
