    Car Mirror Self Portrait

    This was taken last year when I first got my GRD... A bit of silly exuberance on I95 with the top down.

    Tim Smith... Have I changed at all

    Well I-95 looks about the same. You look cooler (and seem to be driving another sweet ride).

    Re: Car Mirror Self Portrait

    Not really fair if we don't have a car!

    On a good note though, I picked up Aperture 2 and finally freed up enough hard drive space to start using it. Once I get more comfortable using it and I'll post some pictures. I've hardly had any time to mess with it besides getting a lot of pictures imported.

    Nice shot Wouter. I like the bit of blur and the smile in your eyes.

    Helen. I adore your shot. The guy looking at you makes the shot so much more interesting, and the hat does rock. Sorry about the car.

    I haven't had the camera in the truck for awhile, but today I was able to get a shot with the hat on. Hey, it's 17 degrees.

    Hey TRSmith
    We sense that strong concentration as you navigate the icy COLD terrain
    How did you have 17 degrees in the mirror?

    It does take a little concentration to get up my driveway this time of year! As for the degrees... it's a display for the outside temp, imbedded in the rear view mirror.

    Re: Car Mirror Self Portrait

    Nice , okay what kind of wrong sided car driving machine is that. LOL


    Seriously short story . i went to Sydney several years ago and i rented a car and all that to get out to a Air force base in Adelaide . Had a nice big job there to shoot. Anyway i landed in Sydney and i looked outside and not realizing right away about driving. Than it dawned on me it was my wrong side of the road. I cancelled the rental car immediately and took a taxi. So just for fun i sat behind the driver and pretended . I killed everyone on the road. I ran into more stuff than I could laugh about. Luckily for the folks of Australia i did not get behind the wheel. LOL
