Lissajous Brooklyn Bridge Study

Lissajous Brooklyn Bridge Study

New York, NY

This is one of a series of time exposures I made by placing my digital camera on the railing of a commuter ferry as it rounded lower Manhattan at night. I had done about 100 boat rides by this time, and made every kind of shot possible of the skyline, so my challenge was to start thinking of very different approaches. I was pretty pleased with how the motion of the boat over the harbor waves created an energetic tangle of light streaks out of the bridge lights. The rest of the images are in the January 2003 curiousLee archives.
