Attempts in Light Painting

Moving (very slowly) forward with my photo backup project, I keep finding old shots that are interesting and worthy of sharing here.  Since I am not really shooting much at the moment (just a couple of weeks to go till the new baby!), I might as well keep you entertained with old photos.  

The series below are my first attempt in light painting.  Slow speed + long exposure + flashlight = fun!  I never really perfected this method, but it's worth revisiting in the future.  I must research more about how to actually get a word properly spelled with a light source, and figure out the best conditions to shoot in.  Certainly something to look forward to!
