The M4 bus route in Manhattan goes from Madison Square Garden in midtown to The Cloisters in Inwood. Or the other way around, depends on where you start. For some demented reason, I decided to take the bus instead of the subway. Reading in stop-and-go traffic is not a good option for me, so I gazed out the window.
By the time I remembered I could be taking pictures, I was on W110 Street and Amsterdam Avenue.
Then, at around E 96th Street on Fifth Avenue, I thought to experiment with the panoramic feature of the camera and see if I could take a nice long view of the avenue from a moving bus, that could be interesting…
It turns out that the panoramic feature depends on the motion of the hand to be successful, not the motion of the bus. By the time I figured this out, I was down by E55th Street, so I switched to taking series shots, setting the camera to take 5 or 10 shots in rapid succession. That yielded some interesting results…
Oh, here I am, 34th Street. Gotta get off.
Where did the time go?
