As some of you know Jean loves to take photographs while we are rolling down the road. She has become quite good at this art. You should check out the link to her Flickr page on the lower right side of this page and try to guess which photos were shot from a moving car and which were not. She always complains about posts and side mirrors getting in the way of the perfect shot.
Today we came up with a new idea – the moving photo shooting stand. It is modeled on the B-17 Flying Fortress. We envision installing a plexiglass dome on top of the car. Inside of that will be a 360 degree moveable seat that rotates at the will of the photographer. While traveling down the road Jean will be able to turn to capture whatever strikes her fancy. (Of course her view to the rear might be impeded by Picasso.)
We need to see if the Air Force has some surplus domes from old B-17’s. Then we will have to modify the seat to meet DOT standards for automobile use. I expect that after no more than $100,000 we would have the perfect mobile photo platform.
