last night a few of us went down to waterfront park for the cinco de mayo (carnival? fair? festival? whatever - it had rides). i've been reading a little more about exposure and wanted to experiment with leaving the shutter open a little longer (these shutter speeds were between 10-30 seconds, except for the dots - those were just out of focus). i'd seen streaks of color/light accidently in photos i've taken, but rarely deliberately leave the shutter open or lens out of focus to "paint" with my camera. so...here we are. i was hoping to get some typical long, streamy shots of the ferris wheel but the lack of a dedicated tripod meant i'd have to do that later.
street lights on sw first and stark.
some spinny ride i can't remember the name of.
downtown portland street as seen from the top of the ferris wheel.
