Hit the road: Mobile photographers capture summer road trips


Smartphones are ideal for road trips. One little device can give you directions, book a hotel, call your mom and take photos along the way. (Before you hit the road, make sure you've read our 8 travel tools for the mobile photographer.)

At Connect, we looked through the #roadtrip hashtags on Instagram, Vine, Flickr and EyeEm to find the most quintessential moments of a summer drive and even included a one of our own. So roll the window down, pop in your favorite cassette and put your feet up on the dash. We're going for a little drive.

Flickr user Mario Baronchelli took this photo on his iPhone.



there's some lovely shots in that set but it annoys me greatly how soft the focus is for many of those shots.
