Flipbook: The PCT at 100 miles/second

Following a plan of Pete’s, each day I took a picture of him with a disposable panoramic camera. We tried to pick a spot representative of the day’s terrain, and I carefully paced out the same distance from Pete for every shot. Pete, keeping mental track of the sequence, changed his pose slightly every day. He never changed clothes for the pictures – what you see is what he hiked in. Because of the changing lighting, you have you focus closely on Pete to catch everything. It’s interesting to flip through the movie frame by frame, but at full speed the whole trip takes only about 15 seconds. May I present, the flipbook.
