    Anybody ever see those shots that somebody did in really BUSY places like Times Square, Piccadilly Circus in rush hour, St Mark`s square in Venice in the middle of July etc, nothing unusual, apart from the fact that there were NO people or cars in them?
    He`d used the slowest film he could find, neutral density filters and f64 to give an exposure time of 5 hours or something, so that nothing that moved in the picture registered on the film.
    There must be a way to work that into a good detective story.

    You would think that even with all the filters and time. The people would show up as blurr in the picture. If there was alot of traffic.
