This guy got married, so we made him walk about Boston dressed in a pink skirt and this hat. It was beautiful.
The Stratosphere has a couple of “rides” on top of the tower. In this one, people ride in a rollercoaster-type car that stops at the end of that rail–and then plunges towards the ground. Two pictures this time! (Tech notes: I really don’t like the noise level in these; that’s a problem that I’m finding with this camera. At ISO 800 and 1600, there really shouldn’t be this much noise. I might try some noise tests with a RAW later.)
No, this wasn’t taken at midnight, but it sounds good, doesn’t it? It’s pretty cool that you can actually see through the gaps in the train cars, even though the train was moving pretty quickly. I had a few other shots that I liked better for composition, but this one was the only one that didn’t end up blurry. All I had was a small 5″ tripod, so stability was not easily achieved.
PS: Sorry I didn’t post a photo yesterday. I’ve been pretty sick, and I didn’t even get out of bed at all. Here’s to standing up!
Saturday night, after the snow, we had a very impressive sunset; unfortunately, I didn’t get to a good vantage point to get any real “sharable” pictures. I did, however, hang around town and play with some long exposure photography. This is a combination of three long exposure shots: one 8 seconds, one 20 seconds, and one 30 seconds.
I was actually playing with long exposure shots whilst driving (not recommended) when I decided to take a picture of Main Street. I don’t know why I like this picture so much, I suppose it’s just the whole nighttime mood combined with the red light wait. Back to the long exposure shots — I think I’m going to try it out with a different method of transport, perhaps an improvised dolly or something similar. I liked the effect, but the car movement provided too much shake.
