Zipping on the highways and byways of California and Virginia, I point my camera out the passenger-side window and shoot the landscapes with lazy shutter speeds.

At speeds sometimes approaching 85 mph, distracting details are obliterated, shapes distorted and colors transformed in these 19 photos. As a result, we may, if you will, see the forest without the obscuring trees.

By emphasizing atmosphere, color, light, movement over detail and form in this way, I hope to make the viewer feel it is not so much time that is passing, but s/he themselves speeding by the wayside.
