Friday's almost over, Saturday is just around the corner. Here's some Eye Candy for the remaining few hours of this week:

Illuminated fountain, the First Church of Christ, Scientist, Boston, MA.

This photo was taken at 10 p.m., daylight long gone, without flash or a tripod. I think I left the shutter open for a good 3 seconds to allow enough light to reach the lens.

Oh, the things my new camera can do!

P.S. There may or may not have been 32 fuzzy photos preceding this one.

You have got some really steady hands! Great picture!

Oh the beauty of a digital slr. Have fun!

Very cool.

I've got one of those, too. Love it. Loveitloveitlove.

Nice camera!

Once you delete the 32 preceding shots, there'll be no proof that the first one you took wasn't perfect!

I took photos of lights in trees last night (see my blog!) and was shivering so badly I had many, many blurry shots and just a handful of clear ones!

That's the great thing about digital cameras - there's no proof that this is attempt #33! And I'm totally impressed with the steadiness of your hands!

Yay! I love that fountain. And I am impressed that you were able to get that shot w/o a tripod. Even if you did have to try 33 times. :)

Wow! I'm impressed that you were able to steady the camera for a whole 3 seconds! The shot came out great!

Those could almost be pairs of crossed knitting needles.

I bet it's all FROZEN now. Fuh. Someone teleport me home without making me encounter the outdoors.

Glad I'm not the only one who saw the knitting needles. ;-)

YUP, that's hard! haha I hate using the flash and am very versed in the 32 fuzzy photos. lol

great shot!

Fun times, huh? Time for a tripod.... There's a very cool tabletop version here: http://www.joby.com/

Hey - completely different topic, but, did you know that your March 29, '05 post about your EZ "Knit On" buttons is now quoted on the New School Knitting Exhibition website?

Beautiful photo! :-)

I like your photo of that fountain. I have one of it somewhere as well. It's a black and white photo from my first photography course. I think I prefer the

Steady hands! I used to walk by that fountain on my way to work in the South End--thanks for refreshing a fond memory.

10mp?? SWEET! I am catching up on the internets, I hope to make it to knitting group again soon!

I lived two blocks from that fountain, and used to jog around it in the mornings back in the day. Beautiful picture, thanks for sharing.
