52 postcards - week 9, Tollbridge blur

For the last year or so, I’ve been experimenting with panning and tilting while making images. I like the impressionisic quality and ambiguity that it creates. This image of the Tollbridge in Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex, was taken in early evening light. I focussed just above the top of the bridge and tilted the camera slowly and vertically as possible. I’ve been experimenting with settings and have found shutter speeds of between 1/6 and 1/10th second work the best.

The printed postcard of the image has been sent to Jeff McConnell in Annandale, New Jersey. Jeff is a pinhole photographer and you can see his excellent work at his website, how things look..
