travel in lightyears


How fast do I drive? Judging by this shot, warp speed. Real speed? 50km/h. I was restless one night and remembered an article I read in my favourite photography magazine. So, I set up my tripod in the passenger seat, turned the ignition and sped away. There was a gentle rain which I think adds a texture to the streetlamp strips of light. It was late and I had the streets all to myself. KL at night, when it's quiet, is lovely.

It looks set to be a good weekend. Wherever you drive, have a good time.

Interesting technique. In the rain and then as a passenger. I thought it was streaks of rain water.

Fantastic photographic experiment. Did you read about scientists "discovering" a new planet only 30 light years away or something, which may be like Earth. maybe you can head over there soon?

PS If the aliens came and offered to takeyou away, would you go? Me - yep! I've warned my partner already!

I love in-car photos and this is a cool shot.

Sally, the planet is called Gliese 581c, and it is about 20ly away. Can we go there? It will take millions of years to get there with the fastest spacecraft we have now.

I'm hoping an intergalactic alien cabby to come pick me up too.
