I just rediscovered an old set of photos and I’d like to share them with you. My friend Kristie Allen came to visit for a week in July 2004. One night we went out to the backyard and she spun glow poi. I took the photography you see here. I set my camera to manual shutter control because of the extreme light conditions, and this actually made the glow poi look really amazing — swirling interleaved spirals and toroids.
