This was photographed at Grapevine Lake in a dark parking lot. Not but a moment after this 30 second exposure was made of me walking radially from the camera, the cops showed up detained me and ran my ID. Night photography is difficult when police are always stopping you. What appears to be a scratch is in fact an airliner beginning to align itself with the runway for its final descent. I printed this using grays blues and some red.
