Night shapes, originally uploaded by jiihaa.

I'm not sure if there is much point in such night photography where the camera sees more that a human. However, here is a four-second exposure with the LX3 at ISO 400 and f/2.0, handheld. Using a tripod this would have been just another ordinary photo, but the handheld blur creates an interesting texture. As a composition, this leaves much to be desired, but there might be some benefit in trying this with more photographic subjects.

Interesting shot. At first i thought this was a train rushing past. interesting how blurring like this can create a sense of something else.

You put the finger on it - I was thinking that this reminds me of something, but couldn't get past that feeling of familiarity.
