Red Balls of Fire

We were at Sultan Center tonight when I realized I still hadn't shot the picture of the day yet. Since the tripod was in the trunk of the car I decided I would do some long exposure photography. I took this picture from the sidewalk near Johnny Carino's on the Gulf Road. The camera's aperture was set at f22 and the shutter speed I believe was 15 seconds. One thing I realized today is that I have less then 100 days to go to get this project over with. Although I started this project all excited and energetic, currently its become a hassle, a pain in the ass and I really just want to quit it. But, I never expected it would be easy and now that I have less then 100 days left its given me a bit of a positive boost. Once I am done with this project I need to figure out what to do with it all. I have all the original pictures which I posted here plus the ones I rejected all in their full hi-res glory. In total they add up to over 8.8GB. In the beginning I was planning to put them all in a book which I would end up giving to my friends and people I meet. Now I am not sure about that since it would be a pretty fucking big book and I doubt I would be able to afford printing it. Let me get this project over with and then I'll see what I will do.

DVD it Mark. It will be one hell of a kuwait guide. I am sure a lot of people will love, just imagine how many read it online, expect 10% of that in sale, it will get you a good sales figure.

it would be large because i would have to make 365 spread atleast. then it has to be a hard cover. then i would like ot add the pictures from although those would be thumbnails at the end of the book.
