    Went to the county fair. Tried my best at getting some long exposure shots of the rides. They turned out ok.
    Edit: Gear used = Sony A6000 and Minolta Rokkor-X 28mm f/2.8 for all but the "no motion" shot.
    DSC05361.
    DSC05394.
    DSC05384.
    DSC05371.
    DSC05370.
    DSC05416.
    DSC05427.
    And I tried to stop the motion in very low light
    DSC05440.

    Some fun results.

    Did you use a tripod?

    Nice. Number 5 especially looks like a Spirograph.

    Yes I did. But I forgot my remote, lame. Only had a few spots to set the tripod without getting trampled, and even then I had my girlfriend act as a "bouncer" so people wouldn't bump me or the camera. They would still walk right in front of me, look directly into the camera, then at me, then at whatever the camera was pointed at, like "duh what's that guy doing?" . Irritating to say the least.
