Rob....this is a very cool pic...nice colors. But what is a people mover and do you think that
we could get one in NYC??

Thanks Patty,

It isn't a bus, it isn't a train, its like the things they have in airports to shuttle you between terminals. It has a driver and is kind of like a bus.

Anyway, it left a pretty good light trail!

Very nice image. I love clock towers, this is a nice one. Horology is sort of a back burner interest of mine.

It seems to me that there is a connection between cameras and watches, especially mechanical film ones and automatic or complicated watches, or at least I'm interesed in them. Something about mechanical things! I haven't adjusted my auto winder in six months! I like the duality of a autowinding watch being purely mechanical, but relying on organic me to provide the power for it.

Throw in fountian pens for good measure.

I really wanted to get one of those Tag Huer V4 watches when they come out, but I doubt it will ever be made and I can't afford one anyway.

I have been known to fiddle with writing instruments. I like old Parker's (mainly because I like the company history) but like Waterman, Conklin, Shaffer's too.

I didn't mean to sidetrack your thread...just had to respond.

very cool image. i like it. reflection on the bus is an excellent touch. my only minor nitpick is, the tower is too close to the frame. if you have cropped the image, adding a little on the right would certainly help imho.
btw you live in one of my all time favourite cities. i love rockies and visit denver very often. thanks for sharing this excellent image of downtown.

Mark,
Another great shot from Denver. The last one looked a little nautical and this one is just darn good. Wonderful contrast between the speed of the people mover and the crystal clear focus on the buildings.
Best of luck,
Tom

Thanks everyone. It was a cold and dark Saturday morning! Between work, my two-year old, and getting ready to move I really have only about an hour to shoot a week. Really forces me to plan out shots and locations ahead of time!

Nice job Mark - a light trail by the light rail. Very clever indeed...

Mark,

Sharper Image has the perfect gift for the guy who has everything - an automatic winder for the autowinding watch that you either (1) don't wear often enough to autowind, or (2) don't move around enough to autowind.

I like the photo - a sure finalist!

Best regards,
Robert

Wow, you're not just talented behind the camera lens; that is very poetic.

Robert- Thanks for the idea, now I don't have to wear a watch on each wrist, or put them in the paint shaker anymore!

Thanks everyone for the comments, lots of good pics this week!
