One of A's Hobbies

We decided to invest in a new digital camera several months ago (and by "we" I mean, A decided that the pixel count of his old one just wasn't up to snuff anymore). It's a pretty cool camera and A has been experimenting with different settings and what-not with it to see what it can do. He was messing around with the different "night" settings and came up with a few that he liked well enough to want me to post them on my blog.

Of course, because it was finally dark at a reasonable hour (look up "land of the midnight sun") and NOT raining (it's been a REALLY REALLY rainy summer here) and about the time that planes are still arriving and departing from the airport (which is relatively close to where we live), we just had to go the airport. All of these photos were taken just as twilight was going into full dark. The exposures on these are pretty cool. The first one is of the street outside our house. The second one is of a small airplane (I think it was a Cessna) coming in to land at the airport. The last one is of an Alaska Airlines jet taking off. The small twin engine plane on the right hand side of the picture is our Piper Apache.
