Maybe I Should Call It "Town Night"

All three of these pictures were taken on the second night of the Town Day festival in New Amsterdam. The streets were jammed with people and it made for some excellent photo-taking. The first picture shows a food stand and the crowds in the dark. The second picture was a 30-second exposure I took by resting the camera on a bench and just getting whatever it would take. People walking by made an interesting squiggle pattern. Finally, the third picture is another 30-second exposure I took while the camera sat on the hood of a car. You can actually see the metal reflecting the greens and reds of the scene. In these last two pictures the constant motion of the crowd turned everyone into ghosts.
