Tips and observations[edit]

Camera choice[edit]

Sony DSC-W839 (2015-Jan 2018)

  • A small, relatively inexpensive camera (sub $100) is more subtle and portable.
  • A large, expensive, and bulky camera probably takes much better quality images and does it more consistently. I wouldn't know; I don't have one.
  • My camera hates artificial light, natural light, and nighttime. That's why many pictures I take are on gloomy and/or rainy days.

Sony DSC-RX100 (2018-present)

  • Compared to the old camera, it is cheating!

Taking shots from vehicles[edit]

From the QM7 24 (2017-8-10) - Barrier machine.jpg
  • Taking pictures in a vehicle (car, bus, etc...) is more convenient insofar as you can cover more ground and see more sights. Particularly if taking pictures of buses.
    • Also, it's the only way to take pictures on highways. Unless you're that daring...
  • As far is picture quality, it is really hit or miss by a mile, but there are occasional gems (see sides).
  • If you can, spray (clean) the windshield and open the window.
    • But you can't clean bus or train windows.
  • Windows reflect their surroundings. So if you take a picture through a window, you or what ever is around you may (will) end up in the shot.
  • Taking pictures in a vehicle pretty much eliminates the chance of confrontation (by police, confused bus drivers, etc...)

Does anyone know what these are?

They are call boxes.
