I have been participating in a 365 photo challenge, where I take a photo each day. As a result I have found myself photographing some interesting (and sometimes bizarre) things.
For example, the other night we were on our way to Costco and Autozone to pick up a couple of things. I wanted to photograph a big clock near our house, so I brought my camera along for the ride.
As we got near the clock, I realized that the picture at night would not turn out like I wanted it to. But I had my camera out so I started playing around. I have only had my Canon XSi for a year or so and now that I am more comfortable with it I have been playing around with the manual modes more often.
Did you know that by changing your exposure time you can make things disappear?
I thought it was pretty cool that I could take pictures of a car headlights and make the car itself disappear! I actually took this picture from the passenger seat of our van, so that's why it's a little jiggly, but I still think it's pretty cool.
I think I am going to have to set up my tripod sometime (at a more photogenic location) and take some more long exposures to see what I come up with!
As for the next photo, I have no explanation for this random picture of air fresheners. I just think they are colorful... and there weren't a lot of people at Autozone to stare at me while I took the photo.
