365 Project : Day 059

This is a video card inside an oven that looks like having a techno party?!? Confused? Yeah, me too!  That is what 3 1/2 hours of traffic can do to you.

Tonight’s traffic was one of the worst traffic for me in a long time…  It rained heavily and as usual, the streets are flooded… That I assume was the cause of traffic, but, on my 3 1/2 hour drive home, I didn’t see any flood ?!? Still confused? Same here.

Anyway, this technique is often times called “dragging the shutter”.  I needed more ambient light to penetrate inside the oven so it can be properly exposed, thus requiring a longer shutter speed.

I need to get some sleep now 🙂
