Day and Night in the same work

Have you ever wanted to create a work of art that has both day and night in it?  Well photographer Stephen Wilkes has done just that.  He positions his camera in a specific spot and turns it on for as long as 15 hours to catch both a night and day image in the same shot.

It is fun to find the line where the image switches from day to night. In the one above it is right around those bushes.  This one was also done around a Sept. 11th memorial, you can see the lights in the background.

I love this one in winter, but I don't think I could have stood up in his crane all day and froze in the name of art, could you sit still with him all day?

Perhaps you like the angle of this one better.  From the picture can you tell where the sun was compared to him?

This is a fun one of Coney Island.  You can see all of the beachgowers enjoying the hot summer day and all of the carnival riders having fun at night.  Could you have sat in the hot sun and got the shot?

  3. All I see are the words KARMA JELLO, but the 'M' is a weird leaf and the 'L's are mushrooms. I think I should start writing my name with symbols....

  6. I don't really even see how this is supposed to be art. There is not even really a point of this.

  7. The m looks like the symbol for weed and the L are weird mushrooms. i dont know how that applies to day and night but i suppose there is some explanation behind it. it just looks weird.

  8. This is really weird and not really my type of art. It isnt really very interesting to me. This is not my favorite at all

  9. That last one looks like both day and night are going on so it is my most favorite one out of all of these. I could not tell that the one picture in the winter was on a crane. I think all of these are really good.

  12. i would say this is more photography than art, they all take little skill or creativity. all you'd need is some photoshop.

  18. This is amazing. These are the pieces of artwork that I am interested in. Not only is there so much going on, but it shows the difference between day and night which is way more sweet!

  19. I really like this one. My favorite one is when they are on the beach, the rides at night look super cool.

  20. This looks like it would be really fun to make. It is amazing how they have half of the picture as a bad side and the other half as the good side. This would be a fun project to do.

  23. I've actually seen these before, when they hired this guy to take a picture of a play. In the main picture, the 2 stars were hugging, and in the mirror they were kissing. I really like this guy's style.

  24. These are really beautiful. It's really interesting to see day and night side by side when they are so different.
