Madrid, Spain, at Night (2001)

Madrid, Spain, at Night

I shot this photo in Madrid in September 2001. It shows nightly traffic rushing on the Calle Alcala towards the Edificio Metropolis. The exposure time was 1/8 sec., so the traffic has just about the right level of blur to it. But there’s something special about the photo that you cannot actually see: it was one of my earliest shots taken with a – gasp! – digital camera, the Kodak DC-4800. This camera had been a front runner in digital photography, and I remember it to be quite good actually. Okay, the pictures were pretty small (3.1 megapixels – a joke today), but it delivered a decent quality at the time. Here are some more photos from Madrid. Enjoy!
