Drive By Shooting
Within our first two days in Panama my dad and I unanimously decided that Panama was the least pedestrian friendly either of us had visited. Not only is the city spread out as not to allow self exploration, but safety was a constant concern (stressed by guidebooks and locals alike). With the heat and sun beating down on us, taxis were not a bad option (see bus post forthcoming), but still it killed me not to be able to wander and explore the streets of the city (walking is what I do best). So I was forced to document this trip in a whole new way I like to call “drive by shooting” (the non-violent kind). Scrapping the whole idea of “getting close” to your subject, I was prisoner to our driver of the day, motion and the massive delay my camera (held together by clear packing tape). But I went with it, embraced the artistic imperfections of blurred visions and odd angles. Click here to see the full-sized photos.
