20141229_1754 Welcome To My 2014 Year In Review (Mon 29 Dec)

Hume Highway Between Home And The Southern Highlands, NSW

You want my review of the year? That's it above.

That is all.

Oh OK, some clarification then. As I mentioned in the PAD for Saturday I came down with a leg infection so, rarely for me, I was a passenger rather than a driver. We had already made bookings in Canberra which were non-refundable so despite me being "Hoptoad Harry, Hoppin' Down Tha Avah-noo" I was loaded up along with my antibiotics and Olympus and off we went.

I decided to pop the window and contrast the motion blur of the trees, whizzing past at a relative 100km/h and representing how this passing year has felt. The fixed and sharp mirror is intentionally included in the frame to speak for the ability to see the year vanishing behind, yet have no control over it.

It was actually kinda nice being driven; it provides more of a chance to look around. Behind the wheel you have to focus on the road.

other sizes: small medium large original auto

I hope you are feeling better. Very well done. It has a strong sense of movement. The mirror is well placed. V

I can't stand not being the operator. I am the WORLDS WORST passenger.
