I admit, I don't get it. Though, I'm not into guns, don't own a truck and I live in the north, so maybe I'm just too much an outsider to understand. I pulled to the side of the road on my way to Woodford Reserve when I took this. Of all the distilleries, Woodford strikes me as the most like a country club. They had a two hour wait for a tour, so we turned tail and headed to a more pedestrian destination.
Travel Photography: When I'm on vacation (and when I'm not, for that matter), I always have a camera at my side. That's not to say that every trip I take is photo-centric. In fact, I do a pretty lousy job: when the light is best in the morning, I'm asleep. When the light is best in the evening, I'm usually having dinner. I usually have one or two planned photos for a trip: something that I plan to photograph while there, and I'll go there at a specific time with a planned outcome for a capture. For this Kentucky trip it was the moonbow in the previous image. The rest of the time I just do what I'd ordinarily do, using my camera as a visual magnet--just capturing some memories like every other tourist. True, I may tend to view my surrounding as a photographer, but that's all the time, so that can't be helped. Basically, vacation is first and photos are second when travelling with cameras.
Camera Nerdery: Trusty Canon 1Ds mkIII, 35L, 1/400th, f/4.5, ISO 100. As usual, when editing for black and white, I used a color filter (red, in this case) and then adjusted levels from there.
