The Neighbourhood Lights

Just a few pictures from my neighbourhood. Some nice lights!

Also, there is a little something extra going on here in these pictures. I had to use a long exposure to capture all that light when it's so dark out. Most of the time it was about 30 seconds that the shutter was I took my giant MI flashlight and painted some light on parts of the photos to add a bit of light where I wanted to. It's a cool technique. I want to play around with it some more over the holidays.

Night Sky

For anyone who has been downtown after 4pm, you've probably seen the crane lit up over where they are building the new Duchess Park school. Good on WIC for making the effort and putting lights up on that HUGE crane. This is a picture out my bedroom window that I took one evening.

I like this picture of my tree. I've got it all setup and have loaded it up with $35 worth of decorations from the dollar store. Everything is so sharp and sparkly. I'm thinking that I'll look for some good opportunities to take some Christmas light shots over the next little while. I went out last night to take some shots of my neighbours house and a few houses the next street over. They turned out pretty good. I think I'll post a few of them pretty soon too. I tried a bit of a new technique when taking the pictures, but I'll wait to describe what I did in the post with those pictures.

I like this little picture of one of the ornaments on my tree.
