"Reflections on Lake Union" A 12 minute-long exposure shot on 8"x10" film on a very calm (and cold) February night. Each little sparkle of light that the eye sees in the moment is added to others over time and finally, they coalesce into broad bands of color...much like traffic streaks during a long exposure. The trick is getting the cumulative exposure right and not having any wind or boats to interrupt the reflections.
