Headlights along Powell Street, Fingo Village
I live in Sunnyside and directly across the Belmont Valley from our house lie the historic Fingo Village and Old Municipal Location. This photo shows the view I often see just after sunset. It’s looking straight across the valley (through all of the coral trees) at the cars and pedestrians going up and down Powell Street.
It’s a live composite image – each picture was a one second exposure and I took 300 of them (ie five minutes worth). The Olympus cameras have some very clever software that adds each image to the preceding one as it is taken. So you get to see the image being produced live on the display at the back of camera and can stop it when you’ve got the effect you desire. That’s exactly what I did with this image when the car trails made a nice symmetrical pattern – it reminds me of an electrical current joining the houses together.
