Day 2 of the Photography 101 challenge, and today’s theme is “Street”. I haven’t spent any time experimenting with time-lapse / nighttime photography and it’s definitely something that I would like to play with more. Sadly, I only had about 10 minutes to get this picture given my schedule today, and taking it in the evening in D.C. meant I was almost run over about 10 times, so it was certainly not the best shooting environment. One of these days I’ll plan better to get some proper late night shots … looking at this (completely untouched) photo I would like to have a longer shutter speed so you can get a better feel for the movements of the cars. Of course, late night there may not be many cars, but what are you going to do.

So, I present, Street. Maryland Avenue NE, Washington, D.C., looking southwest towards the Capitol.

p.s. I took this photo from right outside my apartment building, so technically it could apply to Home too.
