Motion Abstracts with Taxi Lights

Back in March, when I was still doing this blog as a photo-a-day blog, I posted this photo:

blue, yellow, abstract

Since at that time I was only posting images with no text, I didn’t mention what the subject of the photo actually is: the lights atop a Yellow Cab.  As a taxi sat idling at a stoplight, I set a long exposure on my camera and panned slowly over the light on its roof.  This method is more obvious in the following photo, which I also posted here last March.  In this one, you can see part of the medallion:

taxi, lights, yellow cab

I really love how these photos turned out!  You see so many postcards and other images of iconic New York City objects and places.  I like that I’ve captured one such object but in a subtle and unique way.  So, I decided to share the rest of the photos from that series.  I hope you enjoy them!  And comments are always welcome.
