Snap 8 - Cityscapes

When we set out on our Arizona road trip last month, I thought it would be FUN to capture cityscapes along the way. It turned out to be more difficult than I thought as I tried to snap photos from varying distances, through the windshield (which was often spotty from the numerous bugs we killed along the way) or a side window (with sunlight reflections causing distortions), while traveling at highway speeds (or stuck in rush hour traffic). Sometimes I simply forgot to take a photo of a city as we drove through! After some cropping and a little editing, here are the cities and towns I did capture.

Dallas, Texas

Fort Worth, Texas

Big Spring, Texas

Midland, Texas

El Paso, Texas

Tucson, Arizona

Phoenix, Arizona

Amarillo, Texas


Joining in today with Helena's meme - Snap - a visually linked set of between 2 and 4 images.  The set can be based on colour or shape or subject.

I like this collection very much. They are places I have heard of, but never been to and these photos do a great job of giving me an idea of what they might be like

Great group of shots - it's funny how after all the cities, Midland looks like a ghost town!

These would make a great scrapbook page in your travel album! I'm always trying to get something similar as we drive into Chicago. I got a decent one last month.
