Car rides: Exposed

I’ve been in a kinda of a funk lately, no job means no money going towards even the cheapest of camera gear, meaning my flickr stream is on a major plateau… I figured to combat this I’d get back into the long exposures, these being the ones taken in a car at night, anywhere from 1 to 30 seconds long, pointing the lens towards various light sources and mostly letting the ride dictate what direction they go… It’s really quite fun and to see what comes up, and to try and get “better” at taking them even when you can’t actually see anything in the viewfinder mid shot. ┬áComments/ critique welcome as always.

I was looking at some old pictures and realized I’ve taken a picture of the silhouette I’d referenced in the last post. Not as cool a picture, I don’t even recall if I included my shadow in there on purpose or not. Wishing it were a bit warmer out, I might not have just added so many damn cat photos on my flickr stream.
