I only got three frames before the rain ended the session. I had left my tripod in the truck so I improvised by using the quick release plate as a brace for the lens and set the camera on the roof of my van, Timmy. I didn't like the angle or perspective and thought a super low angle would be cool, so I grabbed a few CD cases and set the camera on the ground with the CD cases under the lens so it had an upward angle. I managed to lose the quick release plate for my tripod after fleeing the rain and heading to work. I remember hearing this rattling noise going down the roof of Timmy when I entered the Interstate from an on ramp. and wondering what the heck that was.
