That reminded me why I don't go to Boing Boing. 3 pictures and not a bit of explanation.

No explanation whatsoever as to what we're looking at, so I had to google.

So it seems these trams sometimes get decked out with christmas lights and the photog took long exposures to get the steak effect.

...made entirely of light...


Nope.


(Thought I guess technically every photo is made entirely out of light.)

A photograph made from light really is not that cutting edge.

Are the trains normally covered in lights? Were the lights done by the photographer? What was the inspiration? Were there any challenges or difficulties?

So it's light rail?
