It was quite a dark night and literally I had to quit breathing in order to take this hand-held very long exposure. When I was done exposing I noticed everybody on the sidewalk stopped and waited for me to take the picture.
It was quite strange!
Anyway, I was doubtful the photo will turn out at all. Glad I was wrong.
This photo was used as a cover photo for the photoblogs magazine which doesn’t exist anymore but I found the web archive version of it: Photoblogs Magazine Archive
