Capturing the Ballet of Still Lights
While capturing a photograph a rain-soaked window one night at an Irish bar in Green Bay I noticed that my shaking hands wouldn’t allow me to get a clear picture of what I was seeing: Car headlights and neon signs against the water and stained glass suddenly became a ballet of these seemingly still lights in my lens.
