85mm Prime, Day 7.
An ice cream truck, of course!
PP: Rotated, denoised, added vignette frame.

PS: I realize the white light is blown out, but I like how the cone and other lights glow. I should try again using a tripod and bracketing the exposure.

PPS: A couple of comments have mentioned the little blue dot, I think it might actually be a star, but can't swear by it.

Here's another angle that's a little less blown:

We rarely have ice cream trucks these days and I've never seen one at night. This reminds me of those summer days when I was younger and we'd hear the truck coming. We would all immediately drop what we were doing and run home to beg for change. Thanks for the memory.

I have a dilly of a time with night shots... been trying to shoot some lightining bugs, not working out so well. They are tough. You did an excellent job with this one, it is not lacking a lot of detail. What is that blue spot in the top left corner? Almost looks like a galaxy :)

Very cool...once again, very cool background blur! I can't wait until I have a chance to try some night shots like this.

Looks good! Wish there was a little detail in the ice cream, but I know how it is. I'm listening for the bell!

Nice shot! My only suggestion would be to get rid of the little blue speck of light in the upper left hand corner it's a bit distracting to me.
