Green Roadways Between Delhi and Agra

d3s review (1 of 4)

My D3S Has Finally Arrived!

After borrowing one from, my shipment finally arrived from sweet lady B&H. This is now the backup camera to my D3X, and if you want to know the reasons why I got it (and why it’s my backup), visit my Nikon D3S Review page. In fact, I already popped my new 85mm prime lens on there… so more pics coming soon for the Nikon 85mm Review.

By the way, that is not my family on the right. They are a stunt-family. (Actually, this is the ever-present estro-fest family of my good friend Scott).

I’ll be packing it up for the upcoming trip to New Zealand. Thanks for all the comments on that page, btw – I am going to be following up on that stuff soon, in addition to setting up a photowalk in Christchurch to compete with the one in Auckland! These are free events, so all my internet Kiwi friends are welcome to attend!

Daily Photo – Green Roadways Between Delhi and Agra

This makes you think twice about the three-point baby harness in your 4000 lb SUV, doesn’t it? Actually, I remember growing up in the 70’s and sliding around the backseat vinyl of an old Caddy, swinging ponderously around roads of Texas. Now, it seems to take me an extra 10 minutes to get everyone strapped in, like we are on final entry into the atmosphere!

A bunch of people on a motorbike (or stuffed into a car) is not an uncommon site in India, or dozens of other countries around the world. It’s always a bit hard to capture. I don’t like using a flash, because I don’t want to startle the poor driver.

The most people on a motorbike I have seen is six — and I’ve seen that multiple times in India and all over Southeast Asia. Often times, the young kids are smashing between the parents or older siblings. I haven’t seen seven people on board yet, but I hold out hope.

  • fantastic pic here, i just had to say something.. i follow you and watch a lot of your pics, and soak it in .. but i love the feel here, ,the tones,., and wow.. would love to be trying out those new cams!! thanks for sharing!! )

  • very Indian ๐Ÿ˜€ … this happens only in India ๐Ÿ˜›

    I saw that a lot in India too. Amazing to see bikes like this on the same road to Agra competing with trucks, busses, camels and oxen.

    I have never been able to get a decent HDR with moving people like this (and many of your other published shots). Following your (excellent) book gave some clues, but you are clearly the master of the technique!

  • Enjoying your photos. Your book has finally arrived in Moldova, so add another country to your HDR book list! I’m looking forward to trying some Moldovan photos in HDR. Your job is to see if you can find it on the map.

  • Great photo, Trey!!!! Nice textures!!!! How long do you plan to be in New Zealand??? Your mom says you are considering planning even more than that in the future. Won’t say what as you might not want it announced on here by me, lol. Have a wonderful trip, I’m excited for you, do you have room in a suitcase, lol?

  • I have always found this amazing as I have traveled through India and SE Asia as well…though that is quite a big motorcycle for the area. Great picture, was this a single image HDR?

  • Thanks all! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Gail – we’ll be there about 3 weeks or so! We’ll be moving in a camper the whole time from KEA Campers — should be fun!

    James – This is a single-image HDR yes

  • That’s funny because my brother and I used to slide around the vinyl backseat of my parents Ford Galaxy 500 ALL the time! It was a favorite thing to do, squish over to one side, have Dad take the corner hard enough to slam us over to the other side, again and again and again. Now the kids are strapped in so tight they can barely breath. haha

    Fantastic photo, love the kid on the front, he looks like he’s about to have some fun – or terror, or both at the same time. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • casusan

    Wonderful capture Trey! Love the textures too!

  • Very cool…..And I think I remember seeing 5 in Morocco. Quite a scene for sure LOL!

  • Jim
