Light is crazy.

Is it a particle? A wave? Both? It has no mass, but can't escape a black hole's pull. I read a Wired article a while back about a scientist who shot light beams into a box and slowed them down to 15 MPH ... and then stopped them completely.

Some friends of mine and I played with light on a recent mini-road-trip up the coast. We didn't slow it down or anything, but we did create some pretty cool images.

In short, we set his Canon PowerShot SD770 IS to a 15-second shutter delay and then ran around on the Morro Strand with glowing cell phones. This shot was taken by Ryan McKee. Adam Loveridge is the model. I am the light painter. The palette we used to create this "Angel in the Information Age," as I've dubbed it, was a 4-Cell D Maglite Flashlight, a Nokia phone on a Cingular plan, and a Motorola w755 with Verizon Wireless.
