My angle on the project is photographing lights or objects with lights that are off, with ambient lighting being the predominant light source. So I have these fairly elaborate snow flake christmas lights against a fence, a close up of a halogen headlight, and these.

Would light painting or a camera flash really be considered "ambient light"?

***Official SF Bay Area Sightings/General Thread***

After four and a half months and thousands of dollars in storage and shipping fees - after incarceration, rehabilitation and sober living, at long last a huge piece of my life got dropped at the curb here in Boston today. She is filthy, slightly broken, a bit tattered and tired and herself in need of a significant overhaul and rebirth. But with patience and hard work and passage of time good things can come of it.

I missed her, now let the healing begin.
