Long Exposures Minimalism

Each photographer, I believe, has some sort of checklist for the things he wants to photograph in his photographic career. At least I do. Some of them will be done, some of them maybe never will. But it’s good to have ideas and inspiration. One of the items on my checklist was long exposure series.
