THE ANSWER!

So....here is the answer....
BUT FIRST....
a few more shots of that same thing...

Same thing, sort of....

And....

Another one, that is similar...

And.....

Ooooooo.....

And...

Another.....

And Then....


And finally....

This is what I was photographing...

Only....

The one above was taken during the day, of course, when you can actually see the street where the night shots were taken....That street, La Brea Avenue, is soooo very busy that I was trying to show the huge amount of traffic, going both ways bumper to bumper, with all the lights. And I moved the camera by mistake and it looked so cool, I actually began to shake the camera a lot of different ways, on purpose....but had no idea till I saw the photographs what they would look like!

And, incidentally, a few of you did guess lights from traffic and you were indeed, correct. There were more shots, too...but I didn't want to over-do it...Well, I guess I may have anyway....

Thanks so much for guessing...

I miss sometimes the urban life, traffic, agitation ....

What a tricky way to fool us Naomi! Shaking the camera and all!

Made a great post and a great guessing game though! That's pretty cool. I thought about the lights but I didn't think about them looking like that!

You have a great blog here! When I was a kid in high school about 1963, I took photography and the teacher taught us how to take a picture of Sputnik by laying the camera on the roof and leaving the lense open as it passed over. I thought it was so exciting at the time! Night photography can be fun.

It looked like a time lapsed photo to me, but I wouldn't have guessed it was a city at night.

A quick hello to let you know my link wasn't correct! it was my own fault, get the blog olympics here . Sorry about that. The "presence" link requires a verification code (hate those!) ... good luck! you are terrific!

greetings from michele.

the neat thing about this is if you were to print them on a high quality photo paper and frame them, you could probably make a pile selling these photos as LA Art!

Sometimes, the best pictures result from supposed "mistakes" in taking them. I don't know how many pictures I've taken since I first picked up a camera. Probably hundreds of thousands. But some of the most surprising results came from moments where I technically blew it.

Photography is magic to my soul, and I love seeing how others capture the moments that matter to them. Yours are so, so effusive. Please don't stop sharing them.
