Continuing on into the night and I'll spare you all the technical details this time.
These ladies are on the job all night long.
I like the bag of trash off to the side which I didn't notice at the time.
A seperate photo moving in some.
She's cute and I bet she doesn't talk much either.
An empty store. The blue light begged for it to be left in color.
Someone mentioned to me about Picassa having all these new tools to play with. I was unaware and updated my Picassa. Well among the items in the toybox is one called HDR-ish. I don't know how to do HDR but now I have an easy way to get the effect by just one simple click. Of course I understand one simple click doesn't really do HDR justice just like one simple click to convert to black & white doesn't, which is what I am trying to get away from. Anyway, here you are and I probably won't go there again.
Here again as with the others above, shooting from the car resting the camera on the window frame doesn't cut it for a 2 second exposure.
Also, black and white may not always be the best choice for night shots. I prefer this color version.
I cropped out a bright doorway on the right side in the b&w above, and here I did a bit more removing the parking sign.
I am not done yet...
