The idea for this book came several months into my yearlong documentation work with Action Africa Help International. I started photographing from the vehicle between locations in the field both as a cure for boredom and to further document day-to-day life in rural Africa. The majority of these photos were taken from a moving vehicle, although a few of them were shot within 5 to 10 feet of a paused one.

The included text is versions of blog posts that I wrote during my travels across Africa, thoughts and perceptions of the world passing just beyond my fingertips. In this instance what I really want to show is normal people living normal lives, regardless of location, race or gender. The e-book is over 100 pages long with photographs from four different African countries.
