My 365: Sunset Over Mexico

This may or may not be the globe that I had in elementary school.  And I may or may not be old enough to own a globe with the Soviet Union on it.


Moving right along.  I’ve been wanting to do this for awhile.  To get the shot, I just draped some black fabric over the couch, put the globe on the floor, and stuck a bare light bulb between the two.  I had to do a really long exposure to get the effect I wanted (I used f/22 for 25 seconds).  With an exposure that long, I had to use the remote (or I could have used the self-timer).  I was initially going to use my tripod, but in the end I decided that a stack of books on the floor would work just as well.  🙂
