Lighting Up Our Hill with a 1999 Jeep Cherokee

Beam Me Up
A few weeks back, when our neighbors in Noe Valley and Potrero were all atwitter over the weird floodlights that were installed atop Bernalwood, I took a drive up the hill to see what all the fuss was about. But the hill was pitch black when I arrived, so my investigation was thwarted.

Instead, I decided to create a little weird light of my own, using a police-style spotlight mounted to the windshield pillar of my 1999 Jeep.

This nighttime photographic technique is called light painting, and it’s usually done with flashlights and tiny penlights in small spaces. But since I had a big light, I opted to try a big light painting — by illuminating the summit of our favorite hill with a fuel-injected flash bulb.

Beam me up!
