WalkInTheDark

My hômage to Bonfire Night.

This was by design and to a certain extent a total fluke, but sometimes you need that bit of luck when you're experimenting or taking a bit of a risk with a technique.

I had the shutterspeed set to a couple of seconds as I was walking to the shops the other evening with my daughter. There was a fair bit of traffic both ways, so I thought I'd see what I could capture. The first attempt revealed nothing but the accidental exposure that I took whilst swinging the camera by my side revealed THIS!!

It could be any kind of Catherine-Wheel or sparkler trail, so I dedicate this to a man after many of our own hearts (at least soem of the time, eh?). Mr Guy Fawkes Esq.

Please vote for me @ Photo Friday look for Psychodudu (ca #605)

For some reason, I see lots of jewelry bling-bling at some gala event, which I'm guessing has absolutely nothing to do with your Mr. Guy Fawkes Esq. I especially like the purplish hues smile
Psychodudu: I know what you mean, my wife said exactly the same thing. Lot's of bling, I love it! Thanks for dropping in, Ginnie.

Nice experiment, I lined up something like this for tomorrow with different processing.
Psychodudu: Cool, I'll be watching out for your post! Excellent to hear that somebody's up to the same tricks as me. Thanks for coming by!

wicked!!!...8/10
Psychodudu: Ta very much like. Can I just say, I loved your abstract week, you put out some awesome stuff, really cool images, that were not overdone. Proper classy stuff, mate.
Hey Psych, you are one lucky sod to get an accidental pic like this!! As you say, when one tries to recreate this type of shot, it just fails miserably. Well spotted before ditching the pic. Regards, Neil.

Look out for a radically different(for me) posting from me tomorrow. Goodnight.
Psychodudu: Cheers Neil, brilliant to see you back here moochin' and givin' it large! As a rule, I never ditch images until I've seen them all full whack. I'll be following you closely to see what you come up with. How wierd is it that we're in the same time zone....? Sweeeet dreeeams!
