Yeah, it's a repost, but that's OK. Saw the series of shots that he took, and my opinion is that he either has great big brass ones or a death wish. That car was not standing still when he got that picture.

I think that's the one that got his attention too, as that seems to be about the time he actually did move out of harms way.

Wow, this shot is turning out great with how far I have the camera zoomed in! Uh, oh, wait a minute...
