Today's Bike Run

I was in town this afternoon shopping and as I queued at the ATM in Paul St. I heard an almighty roar from Patrick St. As soon as I got my money I rushed down to be confronted with a large group of bikes making their way down the main thoroughfare of the city!

As a side-note, this is the first time I tried the “shoot and pan” trick with my camera. I set the exposure time to 1/30 second and as the bikes went past I panned the camera as I took the shot. Most of the time it didn’t work too well, but the picture of Santa above came out well IMO!
