About the Book
Two classic Mini Coopers on a 4000 mile road trip - a photo essay. Ed Book presents a 7 x 7 photo essay of 260 photographic images of a cross country trip.
Photographer Ed Book was invited to drive cross-country from Florida to Washington state in one of a couple of classic Mini Cooper automobiles a friend had bought. He expected the trip to be an opportunity for stopping along the way to make photographs of the landscapes of America. Instead, the trip turned out to be a rush across the land mostly on four-lane highways with not a single chance to set his high-res DSLR camera on a tripod to record a grand scene. He did, however, record the views from the highway with a Canon G9 point-n-shoot camera at 65MPH. He shares some of those images, bug splattered and motion-blurred, in this photo essay of the 4000 mile dash across the continent.

I've been a nature, landscape, wildlife, and fine art photographer for over three dozen years. I live on the Kitsap Peninsula in Puget Sound west of Seattle, WA, and travel locally and across the country to find subjects and locations that inspire me to make my images. My work can be found in international public and private art collections as well as in various published media and via rights managed photo agencies. I like to share the knowledge of my naturalist, photographic, and digital imaging experience in the field via tours, workshops, in the classroom, and through one-to-one instruction and mentoring. I have maintained an internet presence through my website (http://edbookphoto.com) where I market my fine art prints and stock photographs and have made over three-thousand posts in my photo blog since 2000. Peace, Ed Book
