I was checking out a blog entry by greysqrl called, coincidentally, “Painting with Light” and it reminded me of the fun and feeling of satisfaction one gets from “light painting”.
I took this picture on Carleton Street in western Niagara-on-the-Lake using a multi-million candlepower torch for illumination while the camera, a Nikon CP5700, sat on a tripod.
This stretch of Carleton Street is just across the Welland Canal from my brother’s place in St. Catharines. Sometimes after a few drinks around the fire we’ll cross the lift bridge and take a walk down this spooky road, looking for something otherworldly.
Unlike most other images I’ve posted on my blog, you can click on this one for a larger version, allowing you to look at it in greater detail. I suggest you do so.
I’d love to hear what you think of this photo!
