    Anne and I were babysitting our granddaughters in the city yesterday and today. I headed downtown at 5:30AM - and as light broke through (before the sun rose) - I drove along Dundas street with my camera perched on top of the open window of my van - - - hand holding steady and finger on the trigger. I set the ISO to Auto and the Exposure mode to Shutter Speed Priority at 1/1000'th second. My goal was to catch a person in each shot with their feet near the bottom of the frame or even cut off - as I paid attention to where I was driving. I got these 8 shots for my efforts.

    Amazing - I'd probably run someone over trying to keep the camera level!

    It's a whole new definition of shooting from the hip! Shooting from the dash!

    Yeah, and I'll bet it's illegal in California...

    I'd be afraid I'd drop my camera out the window.... Very cool though!
