There’s no better way to “see the USA in a Chevrolet.” And, after getting the opportunity to explore Pittsburgh and its countryside in our Chevys, we know five Pittsburgh photographers who would unanimously agree.
We invited Ryan Connolly of Tapwatr Visualiving, Travis Neely of Travis Neely Photography, Rob Larson of Rob Larson Photography, Anthony Musmanno of Idea Mill and Ed Macko of Edward Paul Macko Fine Photography and Design to spend a week capturing Postcards from the Road throughout Pittsburgh and its countryside with an added bonus – a loan from our Chevy vehicle lineup!
With foliage reaching its peak and armed with camera lenses, their bowtie clad loans took them to covered bridges, pumpkin patches, and fields galore via tree lined roads.
Ryan Connolly was head over heels for the Tahoe Hybrid, which he used to travel to Raccoon State Park, pumpkin patches, McConnell’s Mill and more! He said the Postcards from the Road experience resulted in “more than 6,000 images and a refueled love affair for both Pennsylvania and Chevrolet.” To read more about Ryan’s adventures in the Tahoe check out his blog entitled “Chevy Runs Deep.”
The Equinox became Travis Neely’s photography assistant for the week while he enjoyed the beaches of Presque Isle, discovered the collapsed remains of the Kinzua Bridge near Mount Jewett and journeyed along the Marilla Bridges Trail. Many of Travis’ photos featured breathtaking landscapes like this one.
“Traveling in the Traverse and focusing on shooting fall images really made me slow down and look at landscapes. The sights, smells and cool weather combine to make one of the most beautiful times in the region,” said Rob Larson. Rob and his nephew trekked through local state parks and even discovered a semi-intact sandstone building from the early 1800s in the middle of the forest, which they dubbed one of their favorite moments. He says the photos of the five photographers who participated in this project depict five completely different views of the region, as well as answers what each person views the season to be.
Anthony Musmanno was impressed with the Chevy Suburban. He made his rounds to pumpkin patches that were literally a sea of orange, perhaps in search of the Great Pumpkin? And while a few Terrible Towels made their way into some shots, Anthony managed to find what we assume is the one and only Terrible Tractor anywhere near the Iron City!
Cruising the gently curving back roads in none other than the Cruze Eco, Ed Macko focused on taking photographs that would convey the emotions he felt when he took them. The stunning light and the mist captured in his photos projects a peaceful and calming feeling.
We certainly think all the Postcards from the Road are amazing! Check out more photos by visiting our Flickr group Postcards from the Road – Fall in Pittsburgh and its Countryside.
