Beaded Curtains of Light
What do you see in the above photo?? I see dangling, beaded curtains of light…as the title appropriately states. However, if you see taillights and headlights of cars and lightposts along a major highway at night, then you get a blue ribbon and a gold star! While riding in the passenger seat on a trip with my mom many years back, I entertained myself with the long exposure features (2 second maximum exposure) of our digital camera. So I experimenting with moving the camera around, using the lights on the highway to paint a scene on a black-of-night canvas. In the end, pretty much all the photos were either out-of-focus or not interesting in any way, but for some reason, I liked this one with its sweeping beads of light.
