44/365 Drive By Shooting At Dusk

One day, I came up with the idea of shooting from the passenger side window of a moving car.  Sort of a drive by.  The original idea was to look out the window at the lighting conditions, and try making educated guess about what aperture and shutter speeds would result in a properly exposed image.  I didn’t want to look into the viewfinder, because I didn’t want any clues from the camera.  I’d hold the camera out the window, and shoot away at anything passing by.  Then I’d check to see how close I came with my settings to a properly exposed image.  After a while I started getting pretty good at it, and could usually land on an aperture and shutter speed that produced a good exposure.  The only problem was that the shots were always slanted at some crazy angle, or pointed up at the sky, or down at the asphalt.  Today, I decided to try repeat the same exercise, but focus on keeping the camera straight, or pointed at a specific object.  Again this is in a moving car, without looking through the viewfinder.  Sort of shooting from the hip.  No masterpieces here, but some interisting shots.
