Bus Light Trail in St. Petersburg Florida Photography

Not a spaceship, but a double-decker bus all lit up - Nikon D300 Tamron 17-50mm @ f/8 ISO 200 17.7 sec tripod mounted with cable releaseWalking back to my car after photographing New Year's Eve 2012 Fireworks in downtown St. Petersburg I saw a double decker bus making a very awkward 3-point-turn down the road.  I still had my Nikon on my tripod over my shoulder so I quickly set up on the curb thinking I had a rare chance to make a light trail photo with a tall, lit subject, not just the usual low cars.  

Fortunately, it was more of a 10-point-turn so I had plenty of time to get in position and even make a few test shots before opening the shutter for 17.7 seconds to capture the image above.
