Driving down I35 and I noticed a car accident ahead. No police yet but single lane traffic. I quick unzipped my camera from the bag and managed to blindly shoot out my window this scene. I had no idea if I got the shot but when I got home out of the 3 shots I did take this one was perfect. Glad I had my camera.
The Speed Graphic is actually very well equiped to handle action. (As much as a 4x5 can) Built in rangefinder & a shutter shutter that tops out at 1/1000th makes it very robust. I'll bring my 1950 copy of the National Press Photography Association's year book top the next meeting if you'd like. The thing is full of action photos taken on 4x5 speed graphics during its prime.
My problem was we were going about 65 when me passed it, so the camera movement made it pretty sheeety. If it would have been single lane-bottle necked slownesss, I could have hit it.
