sixteen of thirty

(16) long exposure :: hello chicago! 27 sec exposure watching the clouds overtake the city and the rain begin to fall. Only fired off about 10 shots before it got too wet, but I think this one is a keeper!


Took this shot east of Montrose Harbor. Not a whole lot of people out since it was raining, but I did see a raccoon diggin’ in the rubbish bin for tonights dinner. Eew!!  Oh and I think my 8 gig CF card is on it’s way out.  Been acting funny lately and not wanting to create folders.  Which brings me to a question for you photographers out there… do you “erase” images after each shoot or do you “format” the card after every shoot??
