Big City Nights

A 60 second long exposure (you can see the light trails or passing cards in the streets), made from the top floor of a high building on 5th Avenue in Downtown San Diego. It needed a bit of timing to avoid having one of the many airplanes that come in from the south/east (left) passing through the frame – the trail of it’s blinking lights could be removed in post of course, but I try to avoid unnecessary extra work if I can get a frame right on location.
