Musings [110 words]

On a morning of feeling uninspired, despite how stunning of a sunrise, I just wanted to get back to trying something new and toy around with my camera, I wanted to get back to play. After all, I’ve got countless photos like all the rest. But only one like this.

For those asking, this is a a 1/2 second exposure while moving the camera freehand in a very fast motion.

This isn’t the first of its kind, July 10, 2019 was the same technique.

“Trendy”, sure, maybe, but when you’re 614 consecutive mornings into it, you’ve gotta play around and forget about just the ‘pretty photos’.

Don’t forget to play.
