This haunting long exposure shot was taken one year ago and seems to predict my current mood, quite accurately. A deep sadness, loneliness, and haunted by the memories of my girl. She was always with me, regardless of the project, but most always, any photography setting. She was often the subject of the photograph, but inevitably, she would find a way into the shot even when she was not. In this case, it was just after midnight, with a full moon lighting the area, I was surprised to see how a long exposure produced an image looking much like daytime, shadows and all. Initially, a little annoyed, Sophie got in the shot yet didn’t stay still, I now cherish it as a reminder of how she was always close by -and perhaps her spirit is still.
