Categories Photography The moment is now Post author By TEGD Post date March 18, 2015 No Comments on The moment is now About five minutes later, I find myself at a stand still again on the 66 bridge but this time I tear my eyes away from the Potomac and there is the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

I am at a stand still on the I-66 bridge and the cars to the right of me are moving slowly. I used SlowShutter’s motion blur setting with a 4 second shutter speed.
