This picture represents my first experience with long exposure photography. This was taken in the middle of the night, around 11:45pm on October 17, 2010. The lines in the circular pattern are actually the stars. This exposure lasted 20 minutes and because of the rotation of the earth, those lines formed. This is looking North over Lake Erie from Presque Isle Beach 6.
I saw it fitting to photograph an empty bench facing into the great unknown. Many of us see our life this way; I know I do. I’ve spent countless hours on benches like this one thinking about what life has to offer me, or what I have to offer it. I’ve thought about where my life will lead and exactly how much control I have in determing its very path. This bench represents to me the chance to dream and more importantly, the chance to follow my dreams.
