I shot this one threw the windshield of my car, while on my way to Texas.

Nice shot, hope you were not driving. That looks like something you would see here in Alabama. WB appears to be a little off. Thanks for sharing.

BC,

That's a most unusual sight.

"There once wasan old lady who lived in a bus,

She had so many cars she didn't know what to do,..."

If that sight passed me on the highway I probably would be looking for the hidden Candid Camera.

Aloha

Yeah, great shot. My wife and I were looking at this together and trying to figure out what is on top of the bus. My guess is seats removed from the interior to make room for the car. This is funny!

You might want to post this shot in Funny Fotos forum, also. They get a real kick out of this kind of shot over there.

I've seen a lot of strange things on the road but I think this wins the prize.

Yea the color balance is all wrong :sad: That pic was taken with a p&s camera at around 65 mph, and yes I was driving.
I "zoomed in" on the roof and it does look like they took out a few rows of seats to get that car in the bus.

That's pretty funny, seem's I never have my camera around when something like this comes up. I think your color balance was off due to shooting through the windshield, easily corrected. In photoshop elements, I went to enhance> color> color cast: this gives you an eye dropper to select a neutral color. I selected one of the white lines on the road. +7 on the contrast selector and a little unsharp mask. Hope you don't mind, I have deleted it from my HD.
