Freaky Marvel of the Twisting Light Rays

Photo date: February 24, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below was taken in Grand Central Terminal, and shows an example of the strange, strange phenomenon I call the light metamorphosis, in which light rays rise way up from their source, often bending in strange ways.   Notice how the light from the middle TV screen first rises and then falls.

The photo was a flash photo with an exposure time of 1/30 of a second, using normal camera settings
(no "Night picture" setting).
