The Hover Car in the Diamond Age
Around the time of the book signing in New York earlier this year, I headed out into the streets for some shooting. The Diamond District is not too far from Rockefeller Center, and it is a perfect "New Yorky" area at night... especially in the rain. Between stoplights, I would pop out into the street and grab some frames as quickly as possible. With five exposures, the last was pretty long at 30 seconds, so it was still a little "exciting" to grab the tripod at the last second and then scurry off the street.
That one car the made it through my tripod-roadblock is interesting, isn't it? It appears to be a hover-car of sorts. I can no longer recall what sort of car it was, but I keep staring at that wonderful apparition. It's quite mesmerizing, floating there on the rainy street.
