No location scouting. No composition framing. Not being concerned with the right lens choices or perfect camera settings. Not waiting for that one magical moment that would give the shot that somethingextra. Instead, leaving everything to chance.

For his photo series ‘Lucky Shots’, Dutch photographer Maarten Vromans (1975, Rucphen, NL) traveled by train through The Netherlands, his home country. During a total of thirty days spread throughout four seasons, he took photos of the landscapes and city views that randomly passed by his window. And discovered it is possible to produce strong images by letting everything go.
