Be Still My Beating Heart

Union Square
San Francisco, California
March 30, 2014

There are several hearts just like this one scattered throughout the city. Each one is uniquely painted by one of San Francisco's celebrated artists. This particular heart was painted in celebration of the America's Cup Yacht Race hosted by San Francisco this year. I blended elements from eight separate long exposure images which were shot in a one hour period to form this composite. One shot was made for the boy in the red vest and his father, one shot for the girl riding the bicycle, one shot for the mother pushing the stroller, another for the passing cable car, etc..

Nikon D800 + Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 @ 56mm, f/6.3, 0.4 secs, ISO 100 + Singh-Ray Vari ND filter and tripod.
