Very, very long camera shutter exposure


The longest camera shutter exposure

If you are into cameras and photography you will know that you can leave the shutter open for a few seconds to capture an image. This exposure, claimed to be the longest, is for six months and was done of the Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol, England. What's more it was not your normal camera,. but a pinhole camera made out of a drinks can. Nice one.

The Story of England By Michael Wood


The Story of England By Michael Wood
"Michael has brought to life, in the written word, the full panoply of history of this small community in south Leicestershire through almost 2,000 years of English history.
