Fun with Motion Blur

 

I've created a new album on Flickr called "Fun with Motion Blur."  I just started experimenting with a 10 stop neutral density filter and am enjoying it enough to put together my previous attempts at this technique.

More information on the above picture is on Flickr.

In Flanders Fields


In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Cantigny Park
Wheaton, Illinois 41.854560, -88.156436

The park is under construction and they've put this statue off to the side and protected it with wood.  It was nice of them to let it open so he could see what's going on.  I thought it provided an interesting concept in his new temporary setting.

Elgin Fire Barn No. 5 Museum


Fire Barn 5 or Fire Station 5 is a historic building in Elgin, Illinois. It was the fifth official fire barn in Elgin, originally housing horses and a fire fighting carriage. Over the years, the carriage was replaced by automobiles. The building is an example of Classical Revival architecture and operated as a fire station until 1991, the year it was added to the National Register of Historic Places. It now functions the Elgin Fire Barn No. 5 Museum, a museum of firefighting history.
