Talk about bright light. Chris McCaw’s incredible photos track the sun’s movement across the sky with superlong exposures (between 2 and 8 hours). Because the sun is so intensely focused for such a long amount of time, an effect called solarization occurs. In other words, the negative literally burns, leaving striking marks across the images.
Just around the corner from my flat, on Hornsey Road is a sign from the past. The baths are now long gone, the building converted into flats. I have been trying to take a photo of this sign but found the image above on Flickr.
I love love love this playful project “Moon Games” by Laurent Laveder, landscape astrophotographer and astronomy journalist. NASA has made use of some of his beautiful, dreamy photography, and the photos here have just been published as a book in France. I want it!
Today I went for a walk down the road and up the nature reserve and on to Finsbury Park. It was a nice day and I must admit that Autumn is easily my favourite season. I just love that golden sunlight and the mood in the air. And I especially love it when the sky turns pink and I hear Nathan Fake’s The Sky Was Pink in my head.
