This very creative long-exposure photo was taken using a homemade RGB LED torchlight  in a disused railway tunnel in Nottinghamshire in the UK by Flickr photographer Chris Thompson. This guy is a “light artist”, a photographer who shoots in the dark. He manipulates light by moving the light source and selectively illuminating parts of a scene while the shutter is open for extended periods of time, so that the image is built up in the camera sensor.

Flickr is awesome!! So many fantastic photographers from all over the world sharing their work for us to admire! 10 years ago you couldn’t do this – you’d have to buy photobooks for $30-$50. albertlaw took this one of Nagasaki, Japan. Hard to believe this place was hit by an atomic bomb 67 years ago…
