Moonlight Madness

Yesterday my small town held it's annual Moonlight Madness event on Main Street. The street is closed to traffic and all the clubs and associations in town have an information booth..... e.g.: Guides, Scouts, Tai chi, Lions Club, Museum, Choirs, Recreation centre and many more.
All the stores and restaurants stay open later than usual and there are bargains to be had.
The flower shop gave out a long stemmed carnation to all the ladies.
And antique and classic cars are invited to line up on the other side of the street.



This was the perfect opportunity to try out the "low light' setting on the camera. It was getting quite dark when I took the picture of the Chevy at the top.... no need for a flash.

Your camera is doing a good job as your picture are very nice – it gives them a warm glow. It must be fun to go to such an event and it certainly gives you many photo opportunities.

These are WONDERFUL pictures.....And it must be so much fun to see all these "Vintage" cars....I had two different Chevy's over a period of years and they both looked kind of like that one....! There is always so much interesting stuff going on in your small town...! Great Fun!

Looks like a fun way to spend a few hours. Good job with the photos.

Just like magic, I'd say. Don't you love what cameras can do! :)
