  1. Come on, if you were a real artist you would have shot those photos while you were driving! J/K. :-)

  2. You're right. The POV shots of my car diving off a cliff would make for an EPIC memorial exhibit! ;)

    Actually, it's pretty challenging getting the shots I want even when I'm giving it my full attention. There's very little (often no) room for hesitation.
