When your shutter is too slow

Click to Enlarge

My old camera always frustrated me because it was so slow... Every time I thought I was taking a picture of one thing, I ended up recordikng that very same thing (or quite another!) about 9 seconds later...

Like this picture I shot in Paris. Boy, did I have a surprise when I saw what I shot on the monitor! Well, since every time I run across this picture, it always cracks me up, I thought I'd share.

Did you ever take a picture of something kind of like this, by accident?

Oakland Hill View

I was driving up the Oakland hill last week and thought the sunset looked kind of pretty and would probably make a good picture. So, I parked my car where I could, walked over the other side of the street to get an unobstructed view, and noticed that in the time it took to do just this, the sun had practically disappeared on the other side of Mt. Tam... (I'm reasonably sure it's Mt. Tam). Oh, well, better luck next time, I guess. I still got a little bit of color on that shot, so here you go.
