Photo: Smoke People of Cordova Street

It's interesting what the camera can see when you change the default settings at the right time of day. For this picture, looking east along Cordova Street at around 4:30 in the afternoon, I had set my camera to a 0.6 second exposure time to compensate for the generally lessened light so close to sunset. I like the six-pointed star effect that it creates around all the headlights, traffic lights, and light standards, but that's ordinary - what I really like is the way the people in the crosswalk are rendered as blurry clouds of smoke, or in some cases shoes and boots with smoke curling out.
