Day 20

This week is FLYING by. Normally this would be a good thing, but I've got so much to get done that it only leaves me wishing for more hours in the day.

Round 2 of Kettlebell tonight - hopefully my muscles are prepared. I've been giving them prep talks all day.

I didn't have time to get out during lunch today so I took this on my way home. Unfortunately I didn't have my tripod with me so I didn't even come close to getting the effect I was after. I had to leave my shutter speed open for one second so naturally everything in the frame also became blurry, not just the cars. I'll have to try the shot again when I have my tripod with me.

In PS I added an exposure layer to bring the lights out more (my original was a little overexposed). I also added some contrast.

I actually like this photo, the colors, blur, contrast, feels like a busy city to me.

I like it! I love the green light (?) in the middle of the photo. This is how I feel when I come to Chicago at night! :-)
