One of my favorite things to do is to take my life in hand and shoot while driving - preferably while holding my right arm out and pressing the shutter without looking. Because, I have to kind of keep my eye on the road.

Anyway - this is one of those type of photos. I have a thing for homeless people. The man in the photo was carrying a large blanket, most of which was dragging on the ground.

Nice capture, and a quite accurate reflection of how we (as societies) often view the homeless, as having less shape, somehow less substance than the rest of us.

I've seen a lot of these images, the take a picture while driving, but you summed it up, taking your life in hand... only it's everyones life around you also.

That said, I like the car window framing the man. :)

Knowing me, I'd have stopped and given food or clean blanket. Have done that many times.

OK! you, and a bunch of the wackos below are starting to scare me! so we have an entire planet of crazed photgs driving around holding their cameras out the window, looking for some action?? oh my! I am going to start investing in ambulances...maybe mount a camera on the roof and see how fast we can get the camera to record!
I do like how you used the car window as your frame! Cool!

I'm glad other people do that besides me. I do it out the passenger window and have to stretch to do it. LOL This is fun and I like that you included the inside of the car door so we know exactly what you were doing. Now get your eyes back on the road.

Gawd, I used to do a lot of this kind of stuff. Take shots on the fly without looking, I mean. This one's pretty interesting :-)

Intriguing image. I do the same, driving while taking pics. Love the downward slope to the right, as if the fellow is truly on his way down. Nice capture.

I love Deb's idea of a whole series of these! Great sense of motion in this shot. I too take lots of shots while driving :-)

You could do a whole series of these (and sounds like you have) with the car window framing the subjects. That car window acts as more than just a frame, too - symbolizes keeping the world out while you stay safe inside.
