This week was the last week of classes in Cape Cod. Monday’s commute was a broad view of the cabin (going, returning, full composite): And to celebrate the camera that made it all possible, Wednesday’s commute focused on the view in the mirror. The morning commute was zoomed, the afternoon was not. I didn’t even
Monday was a few days after my birthday, so I decided to do a full-on self-portrait for my commute. The result: a scarf-wearing Ted-blur. On Wednesday, I decided to do this driving commute like I did the original set of commutes back in 2011: wearing the camera around my neck as it ran the time-lapse
Just in time for Turkey Day, two more composites from my Hyannis commute. Monday’s I shot from the back window, so it features the heating elements on the glass. In order, going, returning, combined: Today I tried to beat holiday traffic by leaving a little earlier, so the going composite has a lot of sunglare
There was only one commute from the week of Veterans’ Day, so I ganged it up with this post. I decided to aim the camera at the roadbed for this one, with two levels of zoom, so it’s not quite as recognizable: Monday’s commute was a simple forward-facing shot, so I was able to get
This week I just went for a straight-ahead approach, and didn’t change the camera orientation between trips. This enabled me to get going, returning, and complete commute composites. Monday: An interesting effect to notice, because we’re back on Standard Time, the returning commute is now shifted substantially toward sunset, so the colors are much redder.
This week I decided to focus on my car’s side mirrors. I did the passenger side on Monday, and the driver’s side today. I did a normal shot going down to the Cape, and a close-up coming back. I’ll display these as pairs, with the wide shots together and the close-ups together. The passenger-side wide-angle
Two new composites of my commute to Cape Cod. The first: training the camera on myself as I drive through southern Massachusetts: It was warmer in the afternoon, so I took off my black wool coat. The second set concentrates on the instrument panel. You can see the speedometer and tachometer needles clustering at different
Only one commute this week because of Columbus Day. I decided to get a full front windshield, and then zoom in on the rearview mirror to get an image of myself as the driver. Because of the zoom, the wiggle of the monopod blurred the image more than a wide-angle, but it still looks interesting.
More commutes going up! As I’m getting to know how the suction cup mount works, I’m discovering that the “gorilla” interlocking system is not as amazingly strong as its name would imply. So for three of these commutes, the mount shifted during the time-lapse. The first time, going to the Cape on Monday, was fine.
The joys of suction cup mounts! Here’s a set with the mount stuck to the sunroof glass and the camera pointing forward. (The camera was also hanging upside-down, but the joys of Photoshop means that that is easily corrected.) The two images, “Going” and “Returning”, are somewhat different because I take the camera with me
