The Chronicle of my Peace Corps Service (Take Two)

I love this picture. It was taken from the porch of my homestay in New Amsterdam. Initially I was taking the picture just to show how the houses are built down there, with little attention paid to cracks and seams that let in the heat and bugs (you can see that dramatically if you look at the house across the street there). But moments after I opened the shutter a car slowly trundled by and it made this amazing streak effect. Beautiful.
