A blur in Times Square

This is going to be a scary week.  Not because I am in NYC for a conference, but because I only have a netbook with me that can't handle Canon's software.  So all photos posted this week are going to be straight from the camera, not even cropped.

This was a fun shot of a little pedicab zipping through Times Square.  I used this technique a lot in taking soccer pictures for a project a few years ago, and it is now just second nature, even though I haven't used it in several years.  Basically, you follow a moving object with the camera, which creates motion blur on the surrounding area, but your subject is perfectly crisp.
