I was waiting for my wife to get off work so I decided to grab my camera and see if I could capture anything interesting. This was taken after Sunset and I didn't have my tripod so I was laying on the sidewalk like a bum with my camera resting on my bag.

C&C welcome.

Same thing I thought, got lucky enough to catch a light streak on just the one side of the hydrant and aligned with the valve stem. Need a wider view on the left and PS in a car exploding or something into the frame to take advantage of it. Kind of cool how it ends up in the light flare anyway.

The laser and exploding car might be a stretch....but then again..............

Considering no tripod, your improv set up worked well.

Sorry this does nothing for me. What are you trying to convey with this photo? What is the backstory? Because its just a photo of a fire hydrant.

Thanks. The red streak is the tail lights of a vehicle that drove through the scene as I snapped the shot. If you look closely just above and below the red streak you can see some residual of the vehicle as well.

The back story is above the picture.

I like the pic and the story that goes with it, especially the position you were in when you took the pic.

The fact that your waiting for your wife to get off work would suggest a busy sidewalk with people going home from work. Did you get any weird comments or nasty looks etc. Give yourself props to for having your camera with you. There have been times when I would wish I had a camera with me.

I only got one comment. A guy that was driving by about 4 or 5 minutes before this shot asked out his window if I had a license to do that. I nodded my head in the affirmative and he started to laugh.

Ha ha, It's still a nice pic and the story just adds even more to it.
