#432 - On the road
Posted By: RGlasel, 09-07-2018, 11:16 PM

First time hosting a challenge, so please bear with me. After looking at two year's worth of challenges, I can't think of a technique that hasn't been covered and I want to pick a theme that most people should be able to participate in. So, I'm looking for pictures that say something about people on the road. My definition of road is quite broad, even a footpath is a road in my book. This isn't "street photography," people need to be going somewhere and the road shouldn't be the main focus (the "road" doesn't even need to be in the frame).


The Challenge will run until midnight next Saturday, September 15, Saskatchewan time (UTC -6 hours).

Rules
1. Post ONE photo only.
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and, optionally, explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.










Good luck and thanks in advance to everyone who enters this challenge!

I was doubting between two photos, but this one was closest to the theme in my opinion.

It shows a disadvantage (or advantage depevding on your approach of the problem) of having a pickup and more people then fitting the cabin.

I took this one while driving 60 while leaning out of a taxi.

Plenty of room. From a double deck tourist bus in the backstreets of Florence.

Definitely, people have been traveling on water roads since the beginning.

I am very impressed with the entries so far, with such a variety of interpretations. By all means, keep them coming!

This guy was looking at his map trying to find his way around, traveling to a new place. If this it doesn't fit the theme, which I don't fully grasp, I can try to change my submission

This could fit the theme, but I will try to explain myself better and you can decide if you want to change your submission. People are always going somewhere, following a path or road. What I thought of as a theme is pictures that tell a story about people going somewhere, no matter what the mode of transportation is.
