This is the weekend of our annual Fiesta Days. I took a monopod this time and wish (once again) that I had taken a tripod instead - the quality isn't as good as I would have liked. I'm beginning to think that a good tripod and head might make a good Christmas present. I just need to find an appropriate blend of size/weight and sturdiness for me and bite the bullet when it comes to price.

You wonder why this lady is propped up on the fence?

Change the shutter speed from 1 sec. to 1/15 sec.

As you can see,I was playing with shutter speed and motion last night. As a final one, I just liked the colors of the tent, and thought the lighting was nice. Nothing fun or all that interesting.

Hey, that's what I call motion blur! Not only fun for those who goes for a ride but also for you and us. Love the tent in all it's colourful simplicity. Nearly like an abstract painting.

Hmmm… first two remind me of the time many years ago, when I was a teen. I was standing near the guard rail of the "Tilt a whirl" waiting for the ride to stop when someone pushed me into the ride as it was coming down. It hit me on the head and knocked me out! Next thing I Knew, I was waking up with a crowd of people standing over me. They took me to the hospital in an ambulance and stitched up my head… I tried telling them not to worry about the stitches; there wasn't anything in there to fall out!:lol:
You got some really good ones Harriet.
Thanks for the memories!

You just reminded me today was a local town's annual event with rides, hot air balloons, etc. I'd meant to go over there. Oh, well. It rained most of the day anyway.

These are really cool. I really like the all three in motion one. And, I know what you mean about the tent. The kind of thing I'd photograph and my husband would wonder what I was doing.

p.s. John - sorry to hear about your little fiasco. Hmmm, sounds like you have been like Alex for many years! :blah:

Those are great, it is always fun to play with settings just to see how they come out. The tent colors are very nice, I like the visual effect.
