This is a photograph I took on Sunday night. It was a pure, unadulterated accident. I went to go change my Tamron 70-200 from landscape to portrait orientation. As I started rotating the camera around the tripod collar, I accidentally hit the shutter release. Since it was a 15 second or so exposure, I didn’t really have much of a choice but to wait for the camera to finish the exposure. I was actually pretty pleased with the effect in some kind of abstract painting sort of way. It’s not something I was purposefully going for; it just sort of happened in the process of making my normal photographs, which were long exposures of the Boston skyline with light trails from aircraft lights. Still, I think I’m going to give it a try the next time I’m doing long exposures, as the effect is just so ethereal.
