Adventure has no path. Grab your camera and get off the beaten road. Travel to those little communities that thrive with their own unique cultures. More times than not you’ll find quirky road signs that can tell you a lot about them.
Be prepared to stop and get out of your vehicle to get the shot. (They’ll never look good enough is you shoot through the glass of your car windows.) And, do take some safety precautions. Turn on your safety flashers to alert oncoming traffic that there’s a photographer at work. If you have a companion let him/her watch for anything that might compromise your safety.
Don’t be a rush to get to your destination. Concentrate on the moment. Shots like these make your trips a true joy and can add pizzazz to your slideshows.
