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.

Many have said that Flickr is a wondrous website! People from all over the world share wonderful photos here. Like this wonderific shot of Shinjuku, Japan taken by hidesax. It reminds me of the many times that I missed the shuuden (last train) when I used to live in Japan (due to late night partying… lol), and I had to walk two hours to get home (saved me 12000 yen though – that’s $120). This photo reminds me of the movie Fast & Furious Tokyo Drift. (Important advice: Don’t miss the shuuden, and do see this photo on your PC or iPad, instead of your tiny smartphone!)
