It was just meant to be. I pulled over and set up my tripod on the sidewalk and just started snapping away. I must've taken at least 200 pictures, experimenting with different shutter speeds, white balance, aperture priority, etc. Suddenly, the lights went off which I thought would bring my impromptu photography session to a halt. I was disappointed but knew I had taken a decent amount of shots.
On a whim, I took another picture which I was surprised to see that it turned out quite well considering the fountain was no longer internally lit.
This roundabout is a fairly busy thoroughfare, so I had more than a few shots taken with a car driving through. Though my exposure time on my camera is limited, I ended up with some pretty cool light trails in my pictures.
Considering my considerable lack of exposure time, and my relative newness to nighttime photography, I think these came out well. I also had a great discussion about photography with my dad whilst snapping away. A truly enjoyable experience all around.
