The Cat Who Came For Dinner

Doom knows about your freshly-stocked cupboard.

Heat Reflections

Several old china coffee cups, plates, and saucers stacked within a cupboard.

A broken chair, still stately, sits before an open garage door.

A motorcyclist bows into the headwind as he accelerates on the interstate.

Skies And Curves

A school bus drives along an interstate beneath a collection of large clouds.

Arching overpasses on an interstate accentuate a vast, textured sky above.

As regular readers are probably aware, I’ve been exploring the rational limits of in-car photography lately (1, 2, 3).

The images above were all shot in that way — this time, however, using the diminutive Leica D-Lux 4/Panasonic LX3 instead of the larger, more difficult to maneuver Canon 20d.

For a small point and shoot, the D-Lux 4/LX3 is surprisingly adept at spontaneous photography of this type. Like an old-school rangefinder, the aperture, shutter speed, and focus may all be pre-configured. After that — as always — it’s all about luck and speed.
