Looking down 3rd Street

This is a night shot looking down 3rd Street a few blocks from the downtown area. I like the graffiti behind the sign! Also, I always love light fades from long exposure times. The panorama I posted (even though I have yet to host a larger version) included that service station on the corner and was taken from the parking lot you see to the left of this picture!

Sadly, only one photo today, sorry! However, I did get some new lenses and a fancy new flash... expect some better things to come!

I don't know WHY I was up at that time, but I was. Work has messed up my sleep schedule to an extreme. Joe is NOT happy. ;) I'll be done with all of that soon, thankfully. Then I can go back to being job-free.

Anonymous, I forgot to add, this is a train trestle, so it only carries train traffic. I'm not even sure if this track is still used.

Anyone know?

I've never seen a train on it, I think it's part of the downtown track system that got discontinued a while back.

Nice picture, by the way. Were you rocking a tripod for that one?

Of course this track is still used. By avid shutterbugs such as yourself!

New lenses AND a new flash? I would like to see a picture of your new decked-out camera. Is this possible?

Because I save terms of endearment for my boyfriend, Joe.

...and my boyfriends on the side, drahcir and AlexB...

(I will probably regret this later.)

Great photo! I love night shots with long exposure time. I've been waiting for the right time and place to try this myself, but I haven't found it yet.

Thank you! with your photos you took me back to my high school days. I´m from Bs. Aires Argentina and part of my heart belongs to Bloomington and the nice folks I met during those days back to the 60´s. I´m a 1963 Class Member of BHS and I still talking to any one who wants to hear me of my old days back there. Marcelo
