Photoidea to try out: Motion in a static picture

Moving objects show dynamic even in a static photo. We all know night-pictures with long exposure time. The lights of passing cars smear in the photo. But have you ever tried this in a day picture? I did not, because on a sunny day exposure time will short to have all objects sharp. Today I will make experiments with long exposure time on a sunny day in the streets of Hollywood where hopefully all moving objects like tourists, Michael Jacksons, Johnny Depps, other self exposer and automobiles will be blurred. That should give a kick of motion to the static picture.

In my example I made the shot when the bus left the busstop on Hollywood Bvd. The star and the lamppost are sharp, the bus is unsharp.
