Light Flights

Among the slides I’ve been scanning in are some from the days before I drove. As a young teenager I would sit in the car during night-time journeys and open the shutter. I would then wave the camera around at the lights, putting the lens cap back on if it got too bright or too long between lights. These were a couple of the better results. I called them “light flights”.


  1. Those are very pretty. I especially like the second one, it looks like a flower made from a spool of thread.

  2. What a cool thing to do! I can see the fascination! Awesome!

  3. Very cool effect. I did something similar in a camera club many years ago. We used tripods to record moving tail lights. Not too exciting. Yours are a lot more free and have beautiful movement.
