Night Photography

Our night photography session worked out this week and although I went thinking I might not have much success, I actually got some unique photos.  This one was taken inside a cement culvert under the interstate.  Fine steel wool is placed in a wire kitchen whisk which is attached to a string.  The steel wool is lighted? lit? and then the whisk is rotated by swinging the string.  Some bits of the steel wool fly off to create the frame.  Jeff actually had a more complicated system than that but I'll keep the explanation simple.   Our hero is Jeff who did the bulk of the spinning and Dawn who organized the great outing.
