Camera used: Holga 135BC.

Film used: 2002 expired Elitechrome 35mm, cross-processed.

Exposure time: 11 mins.

Tripod used: yes.

Shutter release cable used: yes.

 

I attached my Holga 135BC to the railings at the side of the road using my gorillapod SLR, switched the shutter to bulb mode, and used a shutter release cable to take this shot.

 

I had been planning this photo for quite some time but never got around to it, even though I cycle past this spot twice a day usually.

 

I'm really pleased with the blue streaks! Fortunately for me [unfortunately for someone else of course] there were quite a few ambulances zooming around from both directions, so the blue trails came up in the pic.
