January 1st, 2016


As you may know, ever since 1999 I've celebrated the new year with a two second long exposure that documents what I was doing in the last second of one year and the first second of the next. I have met these with varying degrees of enthusiasm. (You can find them by going back to the Jan 1 entries for my blog posts and then back to the Photo A Week archive starting in 2000).

Anyway, this year trillian_stars and I had to do a photo shoot for a Top Sekrit play that she's going to be in -- so I figured our 2 second photo could be during that and it would be a little ambitious trying to make them all work together, but Trillian didn't want to wear her costume all night (it's this frumpy nightgown) so we shot it at around 10:00 and then I worked on photoshopping the poster and I stopped upstairs about 3 minutes to midnight and Trillian hadn't changed.

"I thought you wanted to wear something festive," I said.

"I did," she said, "I'm too lazy."

"I just want to go to sleep," I said.

"Welcome to dullsville, population us," she replied.

At 11 seconds to midnight I hit the self timer and laid down on the sofa. At midnight the neighbors screamed and shot off bottle rockets.

We went to sleep.

This is our exciting world.
