Is it Reale or is it Beale?
Scenes from a Memphis event Beale Street, New Year's
Memphians have turned New Year's Eve into an iconic social
event on Beale Street, an event formerly held by Memphis in May when
everybody locked arms on the very banks of the Mississippi and sang
the deep slow resonant paean "Ol' Man River" directly to the ole man. While they may still
sing to the river in that reassuring and ancient primordial ritual
on those humid summer nights, this past New Year's eve offered a crisp cool
window to attract a record throng of natives and pilgrims alike to welcome the
ancient new year in yet another timeless blast for all.--BenQQ

Tech: Most pictures here were done
in a "shutter drag"
style up to one second exposure over a moving subject with a
Canon EOS1 mrkll camera. Raw captured at 17.2 megapixel.
More pics like this here and
here. Emphasis here
was the "blending" result of each long exposure, not so much the technically correct
exposure itself. I wanted to create soft lines and "trace routes" of body outlines
that can create the viewers seeing parts of the photograph independent to other parts.
To do this technically correct, you have to set aperture, shutter speed, distance,
ISO, manual and TTL flash modes to get the shot in your head.
