Entry Number One - Rolling Volvo XC90


(Originally published in The Toronto Star Wheels section)

The pre-production Volvo XC90 was tossed out of Volvo's Safety Laboratory in Gothenburg Sweden at around 27 km/h as part of the roll-over test, so I had to pan with the rolling car. Due to the l-o-n-g time lag between squeezing the shutter and the shutter actually operating on a digital camera, catching the car in this exactly 180-degress upside down  stance, broken pieces being shed in all directions, required great skill - or blind dumb luck...

The photograph was taken with a Kodak DC4800 digital camera.
