2011, Day 222 - Nocturnal adventures

I've been enjoying all the inspiration that Google+ has been providing and one of the things I've been dying to try is long exposures.  The silky water, the starbursts of light, the way that stray cars, people and other objects make little impact on the final image; these are the things that make long exposures so different.

So I picked up a remote release and, using my phone's stopwatch, I've been playing down by the river.  Fortunately I had Rachel with me to provide protection from all the scary people roaming Portland (actually I feel totally safe after dark).

I wasn't the only one with this idea, as Rachel and I were waiting out a long exposure a couple more folks with camera and tripods came along.  Company is always welcome, too bad we didn't exchange information, I would be interested to see what kind of images they took home.  Oh well, next time I will volunteer mine and see if they reciprocate...
