Jameel driving

On the way home from the car dealer yesterday, Jameel and I both took cameraphone shots of each other out the windows. Here’s Jameel flashing the peace sign as I drove by him.

What I really love is the distortion on the truck in the background. I think its a combination of the warping of my window, a longish exposure for a cameraphone shot and the effective speed of 130+ mph (combined his speed and mine) as we passed each other on the highway.

    The truck’s cool, but I like the distortion on the tyre more.

    That’s a really neat effect. I wonder if the distortion is caused by the slowish speed that camera phones copy the data from the CCD to internal memory, since they don’t really have a shutter per se.

    @kevin (iapetus): yeah, that’s a neat effect too.

    @MegaBee: yeah, I thought so.

    @lrayholly: heh… I’m sure I’ll take a pic sooner or later.

    @bogosort: that’s pretty much what I’m thinking.
