My teenage daughter is learning how to drive. This is a slightly stressful time, especially for me, as I have to sit in the passenger seat. Her little sister makes sure that she’s well strapped in, even if the car is stationary.
The learner driver finds this quite unamusing.
I have found, though, that if you take photos during the lesson, it helps to alleviate the stress somewhat. I had thought that I was way beyond this kind of photography but, really, it’s quite fun sitting in the passenger seat, balancing a tripod and camera and playing with long exposures. This pic makes it look as if we were really travelling at high speed (actually, we were cruising down Adderley Street to see the Christmas lights).
And then one must stop to take a breather … and more photos. I always tell my students to take night time pics before it’s really night time, so I’ve broken my own rules here. But running around the city centre at almost midnight is kind of naughty and exciting and … dare I say it … dangerous … whoooo! So I had to take some spooky pics to record the experience.
