This Space for Rent

Trolley picture of the day

I had to go into downtown Portland this evening to do an errand, and when I saw that a trolleycar was waiting at the PSU urban center, I pulled out the Pentax to try and get a shot of it. At about the same time the shutter opened, the bus started moving, so I instinctively swivelled the camera to keep it aimed at the offending streetcar (no, I couldn't actually see the streetcar, because SLRs don't let you look through the lens when they're using it to take the picture) while the photons slowly crept through the cheapy lens and onto the CCD.
