Sleeping tourist
Posted By: xs400, 06-18-2008, 03:20 PM

Being on vacation can be tiring. I got this shot looking out of a bus window and looking into another bus window. I just could not resist taking this shot of a tired young lady on vacation. Unfortunately she's missing some of the sights.
K100D + DA 50-200mm.

In my eyes this is a realy nice capture. It has a nostalgic feal to it, if that is the right word. Anyway it works for me. A conversion to BW might give a nice appeal.

This is a mood shot that tells a story. That's the best photography.

you can see that she cleared up some of the condensation, makes the picture very neat

I really like this shot. The condensation creates a soft-focus feel, which perfectly matches the mood.

Do you have a wider version, or how much did you crop? Just curious...

Nice capture Frank and I agree with others it does tell a story. Have not taken a bus in a while and I am usally the one driving so I try and keep at least one eye open. I can;t sleep on planes either - could be my 6'3" frame riding in coach though haha)

Thanks for all the comments on my picture. I have to admit, I know how she feels sometimes, especially when I'm at a meeting at work!!

I know how you feel -- I'm 6'5". I'm sometimes lucky enough to snag the exit row on the plane.
