Solar Flare

As I came home from work tonight, I felt like it had been a little while since I headed out and took some shots so as soon as I got to the house, I bundled up and went straight back out again. It has been a while since I walked through downtown and took some photos and there is an art installation on Stephen Avenue that I believe they are taking down this week so I thought I would go and check it out. It is called the ‘Solar Flare’ and kind of looks like a sputnik light. It is a cool piece! You can check out more information on it here. There was a bit of snow falling and it was a brisk -15 but it was bearable. The main hurdle I had to get over was the traffic. During the day, Stephen Avenue has foot traffic only but at night they open it up for cars. It took quite a bit of moving to the middle of the 1 lane road and back to the sidewalk again as cars, mostly cabs drove through. I tried a couple of shots with the car lights going through but it was best when there were none.
