New York by Car - and Film

Create | Bring into Being

Monkey see.  Monkey do.

The day after seeing Lee Friedlander: America by Car at The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City, I grabbed these shots leaving town.


"It's a generous medium, photography," says Mr. Friedlander.  I was not looking through the viewfinder as I snapped this image, but looking at it now I see how the clouds echo the window's curve, how the blurred fence mimics the bridge tower and how the side mirror contains multiple Friedlander-esque reflections.  A generous medium, indeed.

Tech Tips: Ansco Pix Panorama camera, no settings to set, Kodak Gold Max 800 Speed 24 Exposure 35mm Film (4 Pack), film processed and scanned at Walgreens.
