Several months ago I invested in a new camera. I love it! It has been a catalyst for getting me out in the world and has made me fall in love with nature in a new way. Just before I got my camera, my hometown installed lights on the bridge that goes over our harbor (Harbor Bridge). Every night it puts on a show. Check out this super short video where I capture a bit of its night light show.
I head over to Harbor Bridge a few times a week and watch the lights change. It is beautiful. I have tried to capture it with my camera, but am never satisfied with the quality of my shots. They are just too blurry.
So, as artists are apt to do, I took a negative and turned it into a positive. I set my camera to the fireworks setting to let more light in and began moving my hand as it slowly snapped its image. I love what I got! (I am including a few of the full bridge so you can go through the creative process with me.)
Seems the crispness I am looking for is still eluding me, but I am up for the challenge and am enjoying the pursuit.
Life is definitely more about the journey than the destination!
