'Light-waves' Project - Port O'Bristol




A few years ago I positioned a can pinhole camera onto a 'banana boat' mounted on the stern of the vessel 'Dole Chile'.

For many months it exposed an image on a round trip in the Caribbean from Philidelphia - Colombia - Costa Rica.

Things move on and, for all I know, the camera is still there to this present day!

Which brings us to:


Port o'Bristol

As with all things which have never been done before they take a bit of analysing but I think the above is a start!
The double arcs of the Sun show the direction of travel East and West when resting in port.

Many more images will follow,
