Kawasaki wheel with speed blur

This is an photo I took of a bike wheel a few years back during a flickr meet. I bumped into one of the lads from work who was out for the day on his bike. I was aiming for a detail shot, closing the aperture down to extend the shutter speed. I then waited until there was some passing traffic to get some motion blur.

Samsung S860 and Kawasaki 500


After finishing work the sun came out and I managed to get out for a little spin. It feels good too.

Although I have a D-SLR, its bulky to carry around and I bought a Samsung S860 8MP compact from eBay for under £25 earlier in the week with the idea that I can carry it everywhere and maybe hook it up to the bike to do some videos.

So this was a test spin of the camera too.
