Work again. Fortunately I found a nice distraction on the way to the office. Though I have known this spot for years, I only photographed it once in the past. This time I liked the lights that were on because it was still reasonably early in the morning. Unfortunately I managed to press the shutter only once before I was stopped by the security and told that I couldn’t use the tripod because I was on a private land. Apparently when you use a tripod it is for commercial purposes. But you can take pictures hand held, which would have been impossible for me then with such a long exposure.
Since when all the pictures taken on a tripod are only for commercial purposes, and hand held are just for fun??? Well, we all know the answer. The private land owners obviously don’t.
Anyway, I had one shot, one exposure. Better than nothing at all. I think it would make a nice night image, but I doubt I will dare to set up my tripod there again. They are like hawks there. And fast too.
By the way the title was taken from an inscription on the boat. Ici n’est pas là-bas. Here is not there.
