This shoot was insane. I got access to the starting area at a drag race, and could (surprisingly, and probably unsafely) go pretty much wherever I liked. For my first shot, I was set up a little too close to a nitro dragster when it took off, and the sheer physical force of the sound waves were enough to make me drop my camera and scream like a little girl. From the view above, when the cars punched it, I'd feel bits of tire pelting me in the face. Over 4 hours of shooting, I inhaled more exhaust than I'd care to remember.
There has been a lot of introspection on Ello, and much discussion of what we're doing here. I liked the challenge that @larossa issued a few days ago: to not post anything about Ello on Ello for 48 hours. Today, it's an impossible challenge. Everyone is having too much fun testing this shiny new dragster, with it's screaming, smoking wheels.
Tomorrow, when we're done with the introspection, and the smoke clears, is when the work will begin. I liked what @thomashawk said about how Ello has a way of asking for a little more contemplation and consideration. I've had a similar experience.
Introspection is worthwhile, but ultimately I'm more interested in inspiration. If we can keep this thing on the track, and keep the engine from blowing up, we might actually get there together.
