Road Narrows

Road Narrows Taken in Monkstown, Co. Cork last night. Camera was handheld. I waited for a car to go past and with the camera set to AV mode and the flash on, I shot a 25 second exposure. I moved the camera from side to side to make the rear lights of the vehicle moreinteresting! […]

Patrick Street Lights

Patrick Street Lights Car lights become abstract lasers of light along the main street of Cork City.
