The third and final day that I drove the trolley last year.
I didn’t have to drive it at all this year…so far…
It’s incredible to me that what started off as current up-to-date posts has kept going and I’m already behind again, with the 2022 season about to take of. That’s a good problem I suppose, it means I’m not about to run out of material soon!
But shooting around 40 rolls of film for this project every year, I suppose it’s to be expected.
Every once in a while I get to ride along instead of driving, it gets me shots I wouldn’t otherwise.
I remember the saying that “if you have a camera, you’re a photographer.” Well nearly everyone’s a photographer here. A lot can be said about people who spend their life experiencing it through a screen.
Honestly I’m not a fan of driving it myself, got a few different reasons behind it, from the number of shorter tours per day to the kind of clientele you get (and the corresponding tips). But I’ll take it every once in a while if someone else needs a break from it for a week. It provides excellent fodder for Gawkers As Spectacle.
Also fun to watch my different expressions throughout the sequence.
