Where the streets have no name

Someone who once submitted an image to my U&I Magazine told me that when you take a long exposure shot with a small aperture, the lights in your frame will give a star-like effect. I guess this is true as the picture above was taken at f/22. Granted, I haven't actually tested this phenomenon out with a wider aperture, as easy as it would be with my digital camera.

 

This picture here was taken at the same intersection as this photo here. Facing West at the corner of Bathurst St. and Fort York Blvd., the empty street and curve of the Queen Elizabeth Way highway made for an eerie, deserted mood that I wanted to capture.

 

Setting my tripod in the middle of the road, and sitting on the island in the middle, I took this shot hoping no cars would run by during my exposure.

 

Tomorrow, in my early morning Toronto shoot, I move to the Canadian National Exhibition grounds.
