Default Street Scenes XI -

More street shots at night.

I've now switched over to ISO 1600; but it seems to me, that with present technology, shooting without a flash, I'll never be able to completely freeze the action. So, I'm taking the approach to work With the motion blur. And try to make use of the resulting blur to enhance the action.

As I said in an earlier post, everything looks different at night. The normal, can suddenly appear sinister. A simple laugh can be seen as being maniacal. One thing is certainly true, I'm enjoying this immensely.

Thugs looking for trouble? Naah, just some kids looking for another bar...




A temporary construction framework is always a quick target for movie posters. Here a couple stops to look at some of them.




Sometimes, the most normal activity seems to have a frenzy to it.



Patrons at outdoor seating of a restaurant.




Some friends unexpectedly meet.

Daylight savings ends today, too, so it gets darker sooner and we get mugged earlier...

Sheesh! I was out last night and took almost 600 pictures of the Halloween party goers. A real madhouse. On the other hand, Halloween is a really friendly holiday. It seems every last inhibition is tossed out the door in my neighborhood, where 85 percent of the adults were running around in costume.

And last night I made a change to full manual mode. Works great at night.
