Photographer's Note

This was taken from a footbridge over Charing Cross a busy road junction by the entrance to the M8 motorway in Glasgow. I'm not sure what this shows about Scotland beyond the fact we have traffic here too but well I thought it would make a change from the usual piccies of quaint highland glens and castles. The building that is lit-up in the foreground is St Georges Mansions a good example of a 19th century Glasgow tenement block (its also featured in another photo I've posted a while back taken from the same location).

I used a long exposure to capture the traffic trails and used Fuji Provia 100F slide film because it doesn't suffer from reciprocity failure with longer exposures. I experimented with using a neutral density filter so I could use even longer exposures but this caused a lot of problems as the extra layer of glass just lead to increased problems of flare from the street lights....
