ON THE ROAD

Southern USA from the passenger seat

Story by everything's a photo July 29th, 2014

What do you do when you can't drive...

…stuck in the passenger seat whilst on a 4000 mile road trip across the USA? Dean Moriarty may have had a different answer…But snapping epic vistas through the passenger window was more than addictive. Through Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Florida…our filmic backdrop swept from bleak beautiful nothingness, endless oilfields, deserted buildings - to bustling metropolises, fast food lined highways and breath taking cloud formations.

Note: all photos were taken from the passenger seat of a convertible hire car.
