Night Vision

View of Route 9This view of Route 9 (The brightest area in the lower left corner) was taken around 9:30 P.M. and was exposed for 15 seconds (ISO 400, f/5.0). One of the aspects of photography that interests me philosophically is the way the camera can see things that our eyes can not. Though the average person on the street may accept a photograph as a reasonable semblance of reality, many factors, especially when pushed to extremes, can come together to distort what we see with our eyes. Extremely long or extremely short shutter speeds (star trails or milk drops, for example) help us experience a larger reality than what we normally comprehend. Very useful.

    That picture is amazing! It completely boggles my mind that cameras can pick up things that our eyes aren’t capable of seeing.
