Idol hands...

I have always been a bit of an insomniac. Night time is when my mind becomes active, a little over active sometimes. This may go some of the way to explain my love of night photography I think. I am certainly no Freud. However, I think the link is fairly obvious...

Last night, I was tossing and turning in bed, and decided to go for a ride and find a location to do something I have never tried. I had seen photographs of 'steel wool' spinning before and secretly liked the look achieved. But, the 'inner douche photographer' would always murmur in my ear about 'cliche' photography and my doubts would stop me having a go...but not last night.

After finding a suitable location, and ensuring there were no fire hazards, crocodiles, orcs, or other undesirables...How much fun was had!!! I think I will be possibly doing this a lot more! This is totally addictive!!! I also have had a few ideas of combining some portrait photography into this technique....mmmm Come to think of it, I am not feeling very sleepy tonight!
