Love this kind of stuff Jeff. I'm not sure about a name "Static in Motion" just a play on words. #1469081

I like Sue's idea...way better than anything I had in mind. I keep looking at this and am mesmorized by that long trail. The whole scene makes me think of a fuel sation out in space that someone has just landed at hence the trail. Yeah....I have watched too many movies! lol #10180474

Very cool Jeff!! I love the trail going though the photo.

We are going to have to do some light painting in Vegas :) #10180779

Thanks, ladies!

Teresa - I'm definitely planning on some of this in DC. #10180795

Jeff, these light painting images are all unique and I get lost in them. Because, I can see some faint form around the two 1/2 orbs, it feels other worldly. Its like the one blue orb is suspended or lifted while the others are grounded. I can't think of a title as good as Sue's. #10181668
