Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in Rome, Italy while our Italian Dream Tour group were in our motor coach traveling to Pisa.
Time
It was 12 noon. Our tour group were on our way to Pisa, and we were caught on a traffic gridlock.
Lighting
It was sunny day with blue skies, so it was perfect to just take the photo without any lighting adjustment in my camera through the window of our motor coach.
Equipment
I always travel with my Canon EOS Rebel T6 with an 18-200 mm lens with Image Stabilizer. I also have an XLT pro series multi coated 72mm digital CPL filter attached to the lens. I didn't need any tripod or flash since we were inside our motor coach.
Inspiration
I live in Hawaii, and traffic is the number one commuting problem we have especially on the west side of the island where I live. So this sight came as a surprise to me. I thought Rome didn't have a traffic gridlock especially at midday! I captured the scene, so I could share it with my friends in Hawaii. I was also taken by the way how the trucks are lined up on the right side and the smaller vehicles on the left side. It looked so orgranized!
Editing
I didn't do much post-processing except slight cropping and color adjustment.
In my camera bag
I normally have my Canon EOS Rebel T6 with the 18-24 mm lens with CPL filter attached to it for my primary shooting gear. For back up, I have my Canon EOS 1300d camera with 50 mm prime lens. Then I always have Youngno Speedlight flash in case I need it. In my bag, I have extra SD cards, batteries for my camera and flash.
