Photography as Abstract – Holiday Lights
I was out yesterday evening with my camera, and on my walk I saw that there was a Christmas celebration at the New Mexico State Capitol, so I went over. They had an old fire truck that was covered with decorations, and I took several photos, but with my love for more abstract ones, this is my favorite.
This is a shot of holiday lights that were strung on the front bumper of the fire truck. I had my macro lens on my camera, so a shot like this is just made for that lens. As with all of my photos, probably the trickiest thing was the exact composition. I tried different ones, and I liked this effect of the lights moving a bit diagonally upward and trailing out of the image.
Shot with my 105mm macro lens at f/3.2.
