Unemployment leaves lots of time to think. I was driving today in the Sportwagen, stuck in traffic and thought “this is why people hate driving”.

That got me thinking, how do you describe the feeling you look for when driving or being around cars?

For me, I would liken it to feeling like you’re in a car commercial, movie or video game. Everything has to come together: music, the road, the scenery, the weather and how you are feeling. It’s an amazing high, but short lived usually.

It’s a big part of the reason I keep my cars so clean. Something about driving through the rain, snow, or sunshine with a spotless interior and freshly waxed exterior adds to the experience.

I went through my photos and pulled some of the photos that, to me, reflect this feeling. All taken in stunning places on great drives. Photos that, to me, look staged/edited.

What do you look for in driving?
