Today while sitting in the car and playing with the camera, I noticed a photo that looked kinda cool. So, I decided to make the shutter speed slow and snap some :P

Man, these look great xD

This is the beginning of many.

Right from the thumbanail this is an eye-catching photograph.

If it isn't the intense colors that doesn't grab your attention it is certainly the motion of the photograph that is appropriately titled "Life is A Blur."

Visually intriguing and the subject matter in all its entirety gone leaves anyone wondering what was there and what took it's place.

Of course, a slow shutter speed and a tweak of the aperature is all that is required to make a stunning photgraph and make a surreal reality out of anything at the right speed.

But you don't see many photgraphs make an impact like this. I wouldn't be suprised to find this mixed with a myriad of extraordinary skyline photographs and motion capture or a variety of coppertone works.

While there is no clue as to the overall motion, with no true parallels of light, the appeal really comes from the intense contrast of light.

Overall, it catches your attention and makes you wonder if you want to take a closer look. Amazing work.

I'm still trying to figure out how to activate the show shutter speed on my camera. I'd do the same thing, city life in slow motion

This photo is awesome to look at. I feel like I'm in Tokyo for some odd reason.

My camera doesn't do that I've wanted to capture a LONG frame so it looks like this. City shows down quite a bit when you realize how fast it's really going
