The subject was holiday lights, and this is an example of intentional camera movement (ICM) accomplished by zooming during exposure. In this case, the end result was far removed from the original subject, but I was very happy with the butterfly-like shape of the light streaks. (Olympus E-300 & Zuiko 14-45mm zoom, f/5.6, 1.0 sec., ISO 100, night, monopod)
Dedicated to the joy of experimenting with a camera and occasionally stepping a little outside one’s comfort zone.
