This is my night photo for Carmi's Thematic Photographic, night. I'm not a big night photography guy. Buy, I was going to see the annual Southampton Holiday Parade and the arrival of Santa, (Santa's helper).
The various towns decorate a fire truck and parade down Jobs Lane, our Main Street. There's a committee that gives a trophy for the best decorations. This year Hampton Bays won with a truck decorated as The Polar Express, it was very good, but not my favorite.
The North Sea Fire Department decorated a truck as Snoopy's dog house and all the department members had big round heads like the Peanuts characters. I thought the Seanuts (for North Sea) crew should have won. But alas, it's about the lights not the costumes.
So this was the best out of the bunch. I leaned against the street sign to steady the camera the best I could.
This was made with the Canon 5d mkII and processed with ACR.
