Dragon Chasing Worm_U8R4572

Abstract driving in San Francisco on the 101 shooting from Car window. The "Inch Worm" is superimposed into the Dragon image. This is a composite of 2 images. The dragon was captured hand holding the camera during a time exposure as I drove along the 101 freeway in San Francisco. The object is a LED sign near the old Candlestick Park. The breakup of the streaking light are the bushes along the edge of the freeway that blocked the sign during the exposure.

The purple space alien appearing worm was from a different exposure captured the same way as the dragon. It was a small speck of light that I pulled and did a tom of editing as a separate image in differing styles that I have saved off to create a series based on these worms. Here, it is pray.

FYI, when I first get into the car, I set the camera on manual, set the exposure and f-stop and set the focus just short of infinite. And, when making the exposure, I never look into the view finder, I just point the camera in the general direction.For me, I naturally aim too high so I have to remember to aim lower than what "feels" correct to capture the lights I want.
