I like the use of colored lights of the milieu to draw for us over time their changing positions. I have never used this but I like the result. My walls have you series of light-writing you did I think in 2004 or there abouts. Everyone is intrigued and calls over someone else the the set And a discussion always ensues!

Cem Usakligil used to share photos of lights over water too, but it seemed, (as in this shot of the port of Rotterdam), he used generally static, solely vertical reflections.


I imagine one can spend a lot of time exploring whether or not there are further, (but hidden), long reflections as can be beautifully seen on the right in your shot.


I wonder whether your cameras can also perform the double exposure, (one ambient and many repeated for moving lights), as with the Olympus MFT bag of clever tricks such as this!

Robert’s work lacks the starkness and abrupt short curves of your picture, but it shows Beautiful lines instead, so there’s still a lot of room for novel observations of moving lights.

I am the one who has done nothing in this kind of light capture and I have so much to learn from the three of you!
