attempting to illustrate frost heaves...







i had to photograph "frost heaves" (bumps in the pavement due to freezing weather) for the paper... i didn't want to photograph the obvious (and boring) uneven pavement, and i thought my future car mechanic's bill for new struts would be ego-centric... so i tried to create a frost heave EKG with a long exposure and car lights... we ended up running the last shot.

Way to find a creative way to illustrate one of the classic groaner assignments!

Nice approach to an awful topic. By the time I got to the 4th photo I was definitely asking myself "OK, so what is a 'Frost Heave??'" And the headlights really show it. btw, potholes in MN are the worst they've been in about 30 years, bad driving all over right now.
