Drive By #1 New York, NY

This image is the complete reverse of the other images--most of the time the camera is stationary and the action moves through the frame. This is one where we actually put the camera in the back seat of a Lincoln Town Car, pointed it out the window and drove down a busy road in New York City. The cars in the foreground are compressed because they are driving through the frame so close. That compression is the 'fun house mirror' -type distortion inherent to this technique.
I like the candid, natural street life look of this...almost a 'survey of the neighborhood.'
