Dialogue With My Better Self

posted on 15th of november, 2007

Since I have been sick and home couple of days, and today was my last day at home, I decided to have some fun with my camera, and try long, very long shutter speeds. My exploration ended up with this image... huh, I can't include it to the post... well, it is now on my profile page.

You can see the larger version here: www.maigi.com

The camera was set for a long shutter speed of 30 seconds. And I was running around the table.
Well, not exactly running, but sitting in one place, counting to 15 and switching places.

Sometimes they call it ghost photos.

Since I have to include to my post at least one image from DT, I'll pick this one of Cathy.

It's kinda an experiment too, depicting playful side of photography...

How creative! When I look at some of the things that are dreamed up by so many of the contributors here, it makes me want to ask where I can get some of that "creative juice". Good job.

Love it! Nicely done and it has a genuine ghostly look. Sometimes the most meaning conversations come from talking to ourselves!
