Multiple fireworks captured with long exposure.

Formalism is an artistic concept that shows the adherence to forms. In this photograph, I chose to capture lines and shadows that spoke to me. In "Flow," or the firework display, I took a long exposure of a fireworks display. This made the fireworks not only visible but also traced their movement. They became a beautiful configuration of curved, intersecting lines.
