Here is a neat time lapse of the drive from my apartment to Melissa’s maternal grandmother’s house in Newport Beach. I set my camera up on the tripod in the rear section of my Volvo station wagon. I held the tripod down with a few bungee cords, but you’ll notice that the camera moves slightly through the duration of the movie. I’ll have to devise some sort of better securing mechanism for future efforts. In particular, I’d like to figure out a solid way of having the camera point forward on the dashboard. I cropped the images to remove the majority of the inside of the car as it isn’t very exciting.

  1. That was far more interesting than it sounded.

    Try doing it in heavy traffic next time? Everyone needs a good excuse to drive in traffic.

  2. I’m sure we can figure out a way to mount the camera facing forward (without messing up your dash). Some combination of clamps and suction cups. Or how about putting the camera in a clear plastic box mounted to the forward roof rack bar?
