30 Days and 30 Photos, Day 13

I come to you after Day 13 of my #30DaysAnd30Photos challenge as a slightly irritated person. Why? Because the weather here in small town North Carolina is bipolar. Two days ago it was pretty much 70F in temperature. Yesterday down to the 50s. Last night was not only chilly, but the WIND was nuts. So much wind that it affected a few shots. Well, this shot wasn't affected by the wind. It was all on me. Poor planning. 

So I decided to take a whack at long exposure photos with the Canon T5i. I think I have it figured out now, by the way. I ventured out to the quiet area of town and decided to shoot the middle of the street. Traffic was below minimal as expected. I pushed the shutter speed from as fast to 1/4 of a second to 20 seconds. This particular shot was a five second exposure. It was supposed to be a three second, but since it wasn't I had to pick it up and move it during the shot to avoid being hit by traffic. #fail  

I decided to publish this on instead of the "better" shots. I feel like it shows people what happens with cameras during long exposures and movement. I actually plan on purposely moving the camera next time I shoot long exposures just to see the outcome. Sometimes they work. Sometimes they don't. I have a "mistake" shot I took last year that I love.  Anyway, here's Day 13's photo. Thanks for the support!
