Answer to the Picture

Given a toy to a kid, new experiments will be done on it….

like that I had that night in my hand,

a camera and a wish to experiment something with it…..

My Journey started with-

Camera – to take pictures…of course I cannot cook using it…..

Clicked Object – anything which is beautiful or else something my cam could make striking and good looking.

Search for object – for sure there was nothing interesting inside home…so stepped out…(every nature lover would do that) . Sad part my experiment started at night…moreover no hi-tech cam…just the will to research … and there I found an object…that body was good ….. but clicking that would not have been interesting…infact trying something else would have been fun and amusing…tried capturing it in different modes but nothing paid me….

But try try try until you cry - one mode helped me out of several modes….but again not up to my expectations. Had to put in more thoughts…and I decided to move my camera in a circular motion…..and there was this image which I think was different and could make many brains scratch their head….(I think it made you all do that)…..

I am glad to get so many varied answers .. and glad that three of them have answered it correctly…..and they deserve an applause…Good Boys…

Names are – Harshad, Abhay and Nipun(the late comer)……..nice guess men…

In this course of getting answers, I got to know that people are very much aware of photography…(may be they are professionals or they are interested in such field)…and also got acquainted with the term of light painting. Thanks to Kshitij for that….it must be interesting doing the same….

Many bloggers found it to be a led bulb, but it’s not that too .. its not a neon light, not a cracker, nt an ulta ‘e’and not even a fluorescent toy…….

It is a thing which doesn’t have light of it's own but gets light from the another…..if you enlarge the pic you would also see one more pic to its left…a thin curved line … I have not used any special camera, no telephoto lens(I haven’t seen that too) and no flash is used here.

The object is a Moon and another one is star.

The only thing I did was, focusing the moving camera on the object keeping the night mode on (isn’t it sounding too easy) try this yourself. The thin line is of a star which was next to the moon

Few more pictures of it I am uploading here.

Below is the picture of moon with its original shape...and to the left is small star...:)

PS – I got very high level answers from those who are into the field of photography. Guys this post was just posted for fun and a wish to share the pic of an uncommon shape of a moon with you all. It was not a test or so……

PPS – thanks to everyone for guessing
