The adventure of life is to learn. The goal of life is to grow. The nature of life is to change. The challenge of life is to overcome. The essence of life is to care. The secret of life is to dare. The beauty of life is to give. The joy of life is to love! ~William Ward

A not so busy intersection near me.

I tried to step out of my comfort zone and try some night photography. I took my assistant along! (My cooperative subject has been promoted!) I wanted to do this at a different intersection but a funeral in the parking lot prevented me from standing where I thought I needed to be! This is plan B. I don't really think the name of the school needs to be in the picture but it does lend some weight to the theme.
I tried using my auto ISO feature tonight, and after looking at the shots on the computer, wish I hadn't. The shots are really grainy and my camera doesn't do so well at that high of an ISO. I also used a really long shutter speed here...30 seconds. There's not much traffic on this road and we had to wait a long time to get just 2 or 3 cars in the same shot. I also tried to see if I could get all three colors of the traffic light and actually really liked the way it turned out!
