Star light, star bright
The first star I see tonight;
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight.
This is the last week of our exploration of light at different times of day for Project Light. The week flew by and before I knew it, it was Saturday and I had not been out all week after dark. This weekend we were away from the bright lights of the big city, and I ended up taking my tripod out, aiming up at the night sky, and using a slow shutter speed of 8 seconds. I was pleased with the other-worldly look of the branches and stars, and appreciated this exercise for forcing me to take a moment and observe the wonders of the night sky. It is something that I should do more often, and I am looking forward to further experiments with night photography in the future.
Please follow around the circle to see how the rest of my friends have tackled night light! Next up is fellow New Yorker and mother to two adorable girls, Cheryl Sawyer.
