Q: How do you take a long exposure picture with people?

A: Do you know?

This shot gave me vertigo up first viewing! I had asked my wife to take a shot of this bridge as we crossed from Prescott, Ontario to Ogdensburg, NY. I am assuming that the camera bumped because the bridge is still there and so are we! It was a bit unnerving, however: The driving surface was an open mesh steel grid work that made you feel like you were skating across the bridge.
