Heading home for the evening.
The first photo is one of my toy cars, a reissue of a Hotwheel I had as a kid. The reissue isn't a Hotwheel, but a series of larger reissues by a third party die cast car company in tribute to the custom car designer, Tom Daniel. I was playing around with the movement filter in Elements, something I've never done, and ended up liking this better than the static shot of the little car.
One day last week, after work, I thougt the sky portended an awesome sunset, so I diverted from home and went to the nearest causeway out to the Atlantic. (I didn't go all the way to the ocean, didn't have enough time before dark.) The sunset wasn't as grand as I hoped, but I got some good photos anyway. While trying to get a zoomed in view of the colored clouds I saw birds fly through the frame so I turned to follow them and got this and a couple of other shots.
I wasn't really looking to stop movement, and operated on impulse, thus the slow shutter speed and blur here. But somehow, it works for me anyway, so it makes the cut.
