  • 7. And you can kiss good bye to a month's beer money, you need new boots. - Drift Words
  • 1. the handbrake turn already started, and the tyres are starting to leave rubber. - Drift Words
  • 6. All that momentum converted to noise, heat, smell and adrenalin. - Drift Words

    I saw this photo in in Scott Berkun's book The Myths of Innovation which uses one of my photos too. I was struck by how similar this photo is to some of mine.

    You have a terrific bunch of photos here and I'm glad Scott helped me find them.
