Day 7 of 365
Today I went for a walk down the street from my house to the Milford Green. I had just missed my opportunity for a good sunset shot, so going down to the green was my next choice for prime Milford photography.
The time is around 6:00 pm. People are on their way home from work, getting of the train, and walking the streets. Milford comes alive at this time of day. Lit only by the street lights and store fronts, I travel down the sidewalks until I come to the intersection where Subway is located. I cross the street to the island in the center between lanes and place my tripod down for my picture.
For you photographers out there, this part is for your curiosity. With the camera stationary, I set my camera to ISO 100, BULB mode, F22. I let this photo cook for about 1 minute. Just enough time for all lanes of traffic to have their turn at a green light. This way I was able to capture the trails of headlights from all lanes of traffic. Also, for the observant viewers, you will notice all the lights on the street lights are lit. Red, Yellow, and Green. This is from the long exposure.
To me, this picture represents the night life of downtown Milford. If you like pictures like these, leave a comment and I will make sure to take more similar to this in my upcoming blogs. Don't forget, a picture a day! Stay tuned!
