This picture was taken by a British photographer named Justin Quinnell. Instead of using a regular camera, he made his own pinhole camera using an empty soda can and a sheet of photo paper. What makes this photo so unique is the fact that it was taken with an exposure that lasted 6 months, from December 19, 2007 to June 21, 2008. This seems really interesting to me because of the fact that each of the blue lines at the top are the paths of the sun rising and setting everyday. The line at the bottom was during the Winter Solstice and the line at the top was taken during the Summer Solstice. The picture was taken at the Clifton Suspension Bridge over the Avon River Gorge in Bristol, UK.
