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
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
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
Here are the “traditional” icosacomposites I shot on Friday. More of the process of shooting these can be found here. While preparing the Downtown Crossing icosacomposite I discovered that the camera was focusing on the people close to me rather than the subway trains, so this one has a more dreamy feel to it.
Here are the raw versions of the Park Street Icosacomposite Intervals. These are simple composited in time, with no adjustment for camera drift or alignment.
Yesterday I went down to the Boston Public Library to talk with the print curator about my installation for the Rethink Ink exhibition for Mixit Studio’s 25th anniversary. While I was downtown I decided it was a good idea to continue doing icosacomposites on the MBTA Red Line. I got a good location and was
Continuing south, we emerge into the light of day on the platform of the Charles-MGH subway station. I tried to get as much of the platform activity as possible while including a decent amount of the tracks on the Longfellow Bridge.
