Trail of lights

Taken during the same time as this, which was during the Christmas break of 2007.

The very same fair, Winter Wonderland in San Jose Downtown, but on different rides - the long exposures gave some rather unique shots - like this above.

 

Many of you would have seen a freefall - the thrilling ride where you are accelerated faster than gravity from top of a tower, giving amazing butterflies in the stomach feel. I knew it would come out pretty decently in a long exposure shot and that is what I wanted to capture.

 

Unfortunately, I was running out of time and the entire place around the ride was cluttered. I was interested in trying out a vertical pan shot as well. ... Maybe next year.

 

Spectacular place. If you ever have such a fair, I suggest going for it. You may be the only person with the tripod, but is well worth it.
