OK, we will post our one roll, one camera, taken from a vehicle photos here. Only post your best four here and a link to the rest if you want to post them in a gallery.
I will see if Joe will make this a sticky.
*Feel free to comment on the posts*

XA2, Tri-X @ 800 in Diafine (because it wont go to 1250). The last shot breaks all the rules, digicam shot the week before the contest, more than four, etc... but it was so odd to see it going down the road that I had to paste a pic. I once saw a VW New Beetle going down the road painted in black and white with a "Whale Tail" spoiler and a dorsal fin, with a license plate that made it obvious it was owned by Sea World. (Shamu 3 or something like that, plus the other advertising was a bit more than the average "wrap"). And I do mean Whale Tail as in Orca and not "i put this crap on my car to make it look faster".

I know it's an XA2, but I would've shot the GSN in the same way, most things you could shoot from the car will be at least 20 ft away.)

Well, I guess you just post them here. :)

This is probably the only entry I'll make. It's of a very nasty cloud formation, which I saw on the way back from work. I actually got off the expressway and did a turn-around on the local street to catch this. There was really no place to park to see it. It was a total slop-shot made while driving. This is the best of the 3 frames I took quickly. I really couldn't stop to compose or anything ...

Here are my four and a link to the rest of the good ones from the roll. I was surprised at how many things I found in my everyday travels. Of course it is not unusual fo me to drive 100 miles a day. I tried to keep it diverse. I am going to do it again with the new Konica.
I used my Canon QL 17 GIII and C-41 B&W and various filters

Hi Rick

one question. Do I have to be 'moving' when I take these shots or can they be taken while stopped in the vehicle?

Just wondered 'cause I might rear end some one in downtown Toronto traffic if I try to take shots while I'm moving.

preferably stopped. The only requirement is it be taken from in/on the vehicle

Well, finished a roll with my XA on our trip to Hungary - mostly from the moving car, so I hope at least a few will turn out. I used 800 ASA color neg film, to get faster shutter speeds, gotta drop it off for developing tomorrow....

Actually it was the old cow who was driving when she cut me off just as were both turning off the highway. The dog was much cuter.

Here's 3 shots from the car, taken with my Oly XA. So easy to carry all the time, any other camera would be in a bag out of reach.

Can anyone identify the car in the first shot? We get virtually no US cars in Ireland so I have no idea.

I like the rainy night shot, though it looks like you're about to crash, what not being able to see out the windshield and driving on the wrong side of the road and all. :D

I actually reversed one of mine since I was the first poster, I didnt want it to look like I took it while driving, so I did a horizontal flip and it looks like it's out the passenger window. Now that everybody is doing it, I guess it's ok.

And curses because I missed a really great "OTW" shot. Week before last I got a chance to ride in the open cab rear facing seats of another station's fire truck. Can't ride on the tailboards anymore, so this is about as close as we get now. Seat was in the cab section, my feet were on the floor of the bed section and feeling them move relative to my seat was just kinda freaky. Once we got underway I thought... am I actually wearing a seatbelt, or did I just strap myself into this airpack (it was the seatbelt). I'm at a little podunk volunteer station, so getting to play with the city folks nice purty expensive gear is a lot of fun. The camera probably couldn't capture the essence anyway missing the diesel sound, smell, and air rushing past.

Following Denis' car from his house to the city cener of Varazdin, we had to wait at this railroad crossing

Coming back from the city center, we had to stop there again (Can you spot the difference? Hint: The difference is why we could not do a lot of shooting there...)

First one is with the RF645 resting on the dashboard... dangerous December conditions with fog, snow, ice.

Second is the following Spring, shooting a Fuji GA645Wi one-handed out the driver's side window while moving about the same speed as the train.

This was a quickie shot with my 35RC out the van window. Not sure if shimmer from the heat makes it look fuzzy or it was just my focusing off a bit. Thankfully, this was a controlled burn by the fire department.

Socke
09-04-2005, 13:39
I didn't drive much the last week and so didn't finish the film and I cheated a bit with the one lens.
I used a Contax T-VS which has a fixed 28-56 zoom with Tura Pro 400, rebranded Agfa APX400, and barely got my negs dry today :-)

09-04-2005, 15:52
This is a shot I took with this forum and this thread in mind, since this is the headquarters of a company that's mentioned here often which some of us love and some don't. :) I do pass this one every day on the way to work, right at about the halfway point. It's a one-handed total slop-shot out the rolled-down window. I did a slight rotate and crop.

here's another of mine.. taken with my Canonet QL17 GIII, which is fast becoming one of my "go to" cameras.. this shot was taken out the driver side window as I was steering.. it is totally unaltered, and I'm rather proud of my ability to frame a shot while holding the camera at arm's length

here are my shots taken with an Oly RC / 400 ISO print film, in Toronto on the 401 a 12 lane expressway. In retrospect a little edgy, 140 kph (80 + mph for you Imperial measure holdouts) during the Labour Day rush to cottage country on Friday after work. Still saw some fun shots. First is 'Got Dirt' I don't know so don't ask. Second is a tractor trailer driver pulling a road grader and who thought he was driving a Porsche at about 140 too. Typical long weekend rush traffic.

Doug
09-24-2005, 21:39
Jan, I knew there was a reason I didn't post one or both of those shots at once when the thread opened in August! The one camera one roll idea didn't carry through to the end, did it. Well, at least they're both RF pics! ;)

I have a few more shots to come when the processing is done. Here is one from a remnant roll. Driving on the 401 (Toronto) when I was passed on the inside because there was no room to pass me on the outside while I was cruising at 120 kph / 75 mph. Appropriately the plate on the car reads 'madman 1' go figure! :-)

JoeFriday
10-03-2005, 16:42
guess I'm a madman, too.. I frequently pass people who are going 75-80mph

here are a couple more shots taken maybe a half hour apart during a 5 hour drive.. the first is of the side of my car.. camera held out the window at arm's length.. the second was a rather large fire in someone's farm yard.. not sure what was going on there, but nobody seemed concerned about it.. both shots taken at about 60mph, btw

Doug
10-03-2005, 22:07
I found another one... I was probably a mad-man for shooting through the windshield while trying to drive this twisty road south of Kula on Maui. I was only doing about 30mph though. :D

I wasn't planning to add more shots to this thread.. at least not so soon.. but I was driving down the highway yesterday and realized my car was about to hit the big 100,000 mile mark.. so I grabbed my Contax sitting next to me and snapped these

the tricky part was getting the camera a meter away from the dash.. I had to tilt my head to the side and put the camera by my ear.. I had no idea what the framing would be like (as I'm sure it shows)

jan normandale
10-09-2005, 10:05
Brett very cool shot of the 99,999 thingy, by the way I'm an 'agnostic dyslexic' I am not certain if there is a dog

Here are my last 'outta the window shots' for this project. I was driving eastbound on a 6 lane at about 140 k (at least 75 , like all the others driving this route) when I saw a brigade of bikers on 'crotch rockets' in my side mirror.

I knew they were flying. I think maybe about 180 kph; there were at least 10. After I got these shots a highway patrol cruiser sped past me on the inside lane trying to get them. I never saw them or the cruiser after another 100 km. They dusted him off I'm pretty sure.

JoeFriday

ok.. another one for the collection.. actually, it's a crappy shot, but it always cracks me up... just a few days ago I was driving through town and there was this sedan with a family inside.. I pulled up next to them at a spotlight and the teenage daughter in the backseat looked bored to the point of nearly crying.. I grabbed the camera as the light changed and off they went

Many pictures out of cars some 'out of' bicycles. But where are other vehicles.
So here are some taken out of train.
The two trains were traveling parallel for some minutes with about the same speed. I didn't really manage to express the speed of the trains. There wasn't many reference between the trains, and the background was too far away. Only in the last picture you can see that both trains were traveling parallel with some speed.
