My view on long exposure

 a. To express Bergsonian Time: beyond the insipid snapshots of time, the continuous indivisible Time that only is approximated in the clock time version needed to “be on time” in our daily tasks or to perform technical computations.

b. To give the feeling of a painted scene. I believe that in this way one may get what Proust’s complex recovering of one’s past  is about. I have the idea that this process may well be extended to pick up from a foreign (to us) location thoughts and feelings  not experienced by ourselves from a past embedded in the location.Ref.
