This image was a few second exposure from a moving car during dusk. You can see the road lit by the warm car headlights and the trails drawn by the street lamp as we drove past. The tail lights of the car in front of us jumbled up into a blob or red. This gum print is off in color, as the cyan pigment I was using at the time reacted with the dichromate and turned green. The paper texture was a bit bumpy and there are little dimples in the colors everywhere.
