Grabbed up my film gear one night and headed down to the Hamilton harbor to try my hand at some Long exposures on film.
The beauty of having a DSLR handy is that you can find the effective settings that you can use on the SLR so you aren’t clicking and praying that you have the setting correct even after proper light metering and such.
The above photo is a long exposure with 2nd curtain flash on my 60D, of my SLR taking a 3 second long exposure.
The below photo is the photo that the SLR took.

I’m currently on a the last leg of a week long road trip to southern Alabama and back with my mom. My little sister goes to the University of Alabama (Roll Tide!) also on scholarship for NCAA gymnastics and so we jumped in the car to go see her compete at the SEC Championships in Birmingham. In which they won. Roll Tide.
Anyways, It’s kind of a ritual that we stop in Nashville and hit up a bar downtown on either a way there or on the way back. I love taking my camera downtown there. This is selfie of my mom and I. We’ve been in close quarters together for a week, and randomly been living in a log cabin in central Alabama, but are on our way back to Canada and made the stop on the way back.
Never forget where you came from, it will help direct you as to where you are and can go. If you came from nothing, then nothing can stop you. If you’ve come from everything, than everything will try and stop you. May your worries never last longer than your ambitions. May your dreams burn at your chest. May you be happy in your own skin.

I once wrote a song called “Rain Streets” – but it was about breaking up with a girl in the rain on the street. Duhh.
Spending the evening in downtown Nashville is something that everyone must do. – Not the biggest of cities, or craziest scariest of downtown’s. But none the less a needed experience. Nashville, in my eyes, has become a market place of a once booming culture. – Thousands of young and old flock to the city in search of fame and fortune only to wined up broke with empty dreams.
This is an accidental 8 second exposure shot I took near the Hard Rock Cafe. – I only meant for a 8th of a second but I had my shutter set for 8 seconds. Probably because I was playing with the settings when i stepped inside the Hard Rock to have a look. – after a few tweaks in LightRoom, we get this. – to me, It looks amazing.
