Everyday Moments: Night Photography

The photography circle I am a part of which focuses on "everyday moments" has decided to put the challenge of night photography in our repertoire. Night photography is a whole different animal, and one in which I love. It is not easy, and I'm still a newbie for sure. I find myself getting carried away looking at the images captured by humzadeas and many others on Instagram. Here is my humble attempt at night photography. All photos were taken using a tripod and a long shutter speed. Please join me around the circle to see what my fellow photographer friend, Erin has captured for this month's theme. Thanks for looking!

A 30 second shutter speed captured light trails from a Hudson River ferry boat.
