Drive-By shot

In 2000 David Bradford, a taxi driver from New York, published the first edition of his "Drive-By Shootings", a book of beautiful photographs taken from a cab. Working on this project for almost a decade, he produced more than just a set of beautiful images: the "Shootings" is a collection of thoughtful and honest stories about the city and its people.

However, what is more important is not the beauty of the photographs and not their obvious artistic value, but the example, which Bradford gives. If bad weather, small windows, an uncomfortable seat and a driving wheel in the front didn't stop him from making great photographs for around 10 years, why I should wait for better conditions to make a picture?

Each time when I'm not cozy enough I ask myself that question and... take out my camera.
