Riverboat Lights (San Antonio)

Riverboat Lights (San Antonio)

Technically speaking, there's nothing particularly magical about this kind of picture. These are just the lights on the riverboats of the San Antonio Riverwalk as they pass under a bridge, taken over an extended exposure. But I'm always fascinated by how the camera translates that passing boat into merely streaks of light -- as if the boat and its passengers had never even been there, but only the bright lights that marked their presence to the rest of us. That quickly starts to get a bit too esoteric for my taste -- so suffice it to say that the light streaks are just cool to see. Medium: Digital
