Canon 20D Cork Ireland Lights Long Exposure Night People Photos Sigma 18-200 St Patrick's Street Street Urban Vehicles

Starlight headlights

A long five second exposure at f/22 captured cars stuck on Patrick Street about a month ago.

They’ve done some fabulous work on the pavements of Cork’s main thoroughfare but it hasn’t made a jot of difference to vehicular traffic, except to make it more dangerous to pedestrians as they saunter across junctions blissfully unaware of the cars bearing down on them ..

One reply on “Starlight headlights”

It seems to me the only beneficiary of the widened pedestrian areas are stupid lights and random stone blocks, oops I mean “seats”. Thanks to stupid design pedestrians still end up bumping into each other (and not in the sexy way). I don’t care what the lights look like, but they take up way too much space! I guess they are something to hide behind if you spot a joy rider coming your way.
