    Martin, this is a truly inspiring pinhole image conjured out of an ill lit, seemingly mundane location. It is a reminder to us all of how familiar objects, when reconsidered in challenging conditions, can be shown to posses remarkably evocative and transforming qualities. Your seasonal good wishes for all who strive to chase and catch the light, are noble. You are a pioneer. Keep going.

    Thanks, Sean! The location really is not very interesting itself and I have to confess I originally tried to add several semi-translucent figures of myself to it, but standing still for five minutes proved to be too little for the total 25-minute exposure. I shot the scene near my friend's house during waiting for him (as I was half an hour too early). The lines were actually painted by front lights of my friend's car when he was coming. Although I wished some car to pass during the exposure, it was hardly possible as there is almost no traffic and I did not expect him to come this way. Unplanned by me and unnoticed by him. I think this is a typical example of the surprise factor in (pinhole) photography.

    Love the minimalism. Reminds me of an abstract expressionist painting.
