I have posted pictures of each critical mass I've been to, here in Nottingham. I thought as a kind of summary, that it might be interesting to present an edited set, as a slide show AVI. Here is the result. I hope you enjoy,
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'
For most of the year, we do the ride in the city in the daylight. easier for photography. But being so dark 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 intense. All designed to give a vibrancy. So, there you have it :-)
I hope the work, helps persuade you, that you might like to join us......
Hope to see all at the next one on March 31st, [the last friday of each month]
