Abstract Selfy

Was experimenting with long-time exposure again - this time in front of a mirror. And naturally moving the camera. On one side it was easier than doing those shots outdoor in bright sunlight as it was no problem to get exposures of 4 to 20 seconds by simply stopping down to f16. But the effect was harder to predict as there was much more time to move the camera and blur the image. And I was not even keeping the camera to my eye during the shot so I had not much control of what it was pointing at and what the camera was seeing.
Some shots came out pretty ghostly with me being half transparent.  Pretty interesting indeed if the background on those ones were not so cluttered. So I picked this one which benefited from using a 135mm lens to isolate myself from the background.
