Tailgating at the Speed of Light

A shutter open for five seconds capturing a southbound driver following much too closely, as is often the case on this road.

Almost Spring

I bought a 35mm f/1.8 prime lens for my camera, and spent a few minutes walking around the yard looking for something colorful as part of an experiment to see how pleasing or annoying the bokeh would be. I'm fairly pleased with the performance, especially considering the low cost of the lens.  Plus, with the cropped sensor on my camera, the 35mm equates to approximately 50mm - a normal lens equal to the 50mm lens on my SLR all those years ago.
