Crossing America

Patrick Nielsen Hayden comments in his blog about a recent road trip across, at least, the northern and eastern part of the US (moving further to the west than I would consider "Eastern" since he mentions Wisconsin). Reading that post and the comments that follow it reminded me of something I saw on the internet a while ago. A quick Google revealed this movie of a trip across America, from New York to San Francisco. The photographer took one analog picture every mile and assembled them into a movie that I still find quite impressive. It expresses the scope and size of the US in a way that I haven't seen many other places.
