This photo is one I took at the Tokyo World Trade Center early this year. I really enjoy light trails in city photography, but I think sometimes it gets overused, when there are other forms of showing movement that are really great. In this case, I kept my shutter open for just half a second – enough to show the movement of the cars across the intersection, but not enough to create long, flowing light trails. I really like the way it worked in this instance, and in fact think the light trails would not have looked as interesting.
