Ball of Light - Keeping an Eye on Me



I spent hours at the dismantlers yard on the weekend. It is an incredible place. I only left because I had used my two batteries.


Once the shutter is open and the Ball of Light is doing its think I have between 5 and 10 minutes to wander around. I had ages to look at the cars and started trying to figure out why each one was there. Obviously many of them were simple mechanical failure as the bodies of the car were untouched. But many, many of them were bad accidents!


It made me think of a couple of things. The modern motor vehicle is incredible safe! I also came to the realisation that I was surrounded by the cause of some horrific death and carnage. Once this thought was in my head it made the night very different.


The Ball of Light was there to protect me though!


Be Safe
