As usual, I've tried to take a set of pictures that show critical mass to be an empowering experience. Hopefully fun to be at. A celebration of the alternatives to the existing 'car culture' Being so datk at this time on a winters evening, and not wanting to blat everyone with flash all the time, at these last few event, I found myself coming over 'all arty' and trying out time exposures with longer shutter speed, so that the movement, 'draws' over the photograph. Colour is more intence. All designed to give a vibrancy. So, there you have it :-)
