Wait, 2:00am in the MORNING?!

Sam McBride says:

I'm going to guess that it was a strand of lights that you weighted down near the bottom and then you held it out in front of you and twirled it around and around..Kinda like you did the other ones, but this one was latitudinal instead of longitudinal . Hope this makes sense. :-)

Hey !!you're Awesome…captured on a road….!!!!!

Matt Inman says:

Im going to say the last photo was made using a cordless drill, a piece of string and then an LED on the end. The drill would be turned on and the light would spin in a small circle and gradually increase as it is lifted up higher. Then the drill woulr be turned off and the circles would get smaller. That's my guess… 

Chris FRUCI says:

But one question how did you remove your body out of the shot ?

You made one or two light painting orb and then keep copying it and pasting it in the picture.

Teo Yong Yao says:

you are using joysticks to do an orb that ps paste and copy…

you hung the led lights on a pole and push them down from top and they swirl around the pole giving that effect
