Spooky Wonder of the Light Metamorphosis

Photo date: January 13, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

In yesterday's post I described an incredibly strange photographic anomaly in which light seems to rise up like drifting smoke. Today I observed this shocking strangeness once again. All of the photos I will show were taken while the camera was stable. It is only the light from the TV that will seem to move, not any other details in the photo.

Here is one example.

Here is another example:

Here is another very colorful example. The TV was showing a "trumpet fanfare" scene from the 1939 movie The Adventures of Robin Hood.

And now for the grand climax. We see the letters "MC" (short for "Music Choice") rise up from above the television screen, and float above the television.

Like all photos on this site, these photos are all entirely authentic. They do not involve any trick photography or long exposure times. They were taken with an old point-and-click camera using normal photo settings. The photos were flash photos with an exposure time of 1/30 of a second, using normal photo settings (no "Night picture" setting).
