Writing with light

In 1980 we lived on the 20th floor of an apartment building in Mississauga.  It was near the water front though we faced north east.  I was doing a lot of experimenting with photography and long exposure.  If I recorded the data on this I don’t know where it is now, but I do remember it was a cool autumn evening.  I set my camera up on a tripod and opened the lens long enough to record the word “HI” using a flashlight.  I thought it turned out pretty good.

Oh and for the young at heart – this was recorded on something called film.  It went the way of the typewriter!
