Lens-Artists Photo Challange 157: “Getting away”

Another guest host for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. This week’s subject is nominated by Rusha Sams. “Getting away” is a harder one and I really needed the time ahead to get an idea of what to post.

First I had to understand and find my own way of interpreting the topic. You can try to escape from a danger, but you can also refer to a transportation vehicle. Finally, I stayed with ‘travel’.

There are many options to get away: by foot, by train, by bike, by ship, by car, by plane, or by a couple of further possibilities. When I read this week’s topic first, I had a hard time finding suitable images. Excire helped me very much. Typing in the keyword ‘travel’ gave me nearly 400 matches to choose from.

Enjoy the images. Remember you can enlarge them by clicking on one of them as usual.

  1. You had me at your first paragraph. I hadn’t thought of a getaway vehicle or escaping from danger, but they work quite well. Ultimately, though, your photo collage is right on with lots of ways to get away. Thanks for participating and sharing your takes on the challenge!

  2. I particularly like the train shots, including that of the station. The balloons are great too. Trying to decide if I’m participating today or not. We’re having company, which takes precedent. ๐Ÿ™‚


  3. Your post reminded me of a very funny movie Andre – do you remember Planes, Trains and Automobiles? I still remember my father laughing out loud at that one – a fond memory. Loved your choices as always and a creative approach to the challenge. The B&W train and the balloons are my favorites of this set.

    1. Thank you so much, Tina. I looked up the movie you mentioned in IMDB. Movies run here rarely with their original names. I noticed it was released in 1988 in Germany. Here the movie run with the name “Ein Ticket fรผr zwei” (A ticket for two). Although I read the synopsis, I can’t remember having watched it (despite my kids occasionally call me Mr. Wikipedia).

        1. I will have an open eye. Every now and than Steve Martin movies are on air. (although, I now consider some of them quite foolish – it seems I grew older over the years ๐Ÿ˜Š, in the past I kind of liked his movies)

What do you think?
