A year long exposure.

seen here

the above image came from a pinhole camera aimed at the Toronto skyline... for an entire year. a normal exposure for a photo is a fraction of a second. the exposure for this image lasted 31,556,926 seconds (give or take a few), but through a minuscule hole in a camera mounted next to a metal box in the local shipyard. i don't know what's more amazing- the fact that the camera was waiting for the artist 365 days later, or that the image that resulted is so dreamy and perfect.
