Night Rider

 Chad gave me the night off yesterday.  After a trip to Border's, I still wasn't ready to go home.  I was about to cross I-5 when I realized I should get out, walk up the bridge, and take some slow shutter shots (one photo taken over a few seconds, in my case 8) of the cars zooming by.  Well, there weren't enough cars to make it look cool (see above photo).  Yeah, not so cool.  Bummed, I got back into the car.  Then I thought, I could take slow shutter photos while I'M DRIVING!!!  Ah ha ha.  There weren't that many cars out, and I always held the camera to the side of my face, so I was still watching the road.  Though, one lady totally glared at me at a stop light.  "KIDS, they're gonna kill us all!" 
See the dashboard?
 Driving through a green light.  It turns aqua in these photos.
 Going around and around the round-about.  About 10 times or so.  It was hard not to feel thrilled, even though I was completely aware of my supreme dorkiness.
 Gateway St.  See the KFC sign?  Super 8?
 Turning.  Don't ask me how it got that crazy, it was a normal turn. 
Driving by the hospital.

Okay, this was REALLY fun.  The other day, I took pictures while riding my bike, though the photos were really lame.  Maybe next time, someone can pull me in a wagon while I take pictures.  Or, I've been wanting to learn how to skateboard.  I dare not show up at the skate park with roller blades.  Uberdork alert!  Why aren't roller blades cool right now?  I love roller blades.  That's it.  I'm going to the skate park with my blades, and restarting the trend.  I'll take pictures.  Promise.
