FROM THE TAXI DRIVER'S SEAT,
SAN FRANCISCO,
May 2005.



I bought my Nikon D70 on Monday night April 18. The next day I had to go to work. My first oppurtunity to use my new camera was at the Veterans/Arrow Taxi garage. But I also took the camera with me when I drove my taxi. Since I had it with me anyway, I decided to capture what I saw while I was driving each day. The camera would stay around my neck and usually while I sat at a red light I would open my window and shoot.The following photos were edited from over 300 images. All of these photos were taken "from the driver's seat."
