Time-Lapse Helicopter Take-Off – Light Painting from 1949

Andreas Feininger’s time-lapse Life Magazine photo of a helicopter taking off at night from 1949 is… amazing.  With the Pablo Picasso light painting pictures from that year, I never imagined that 1949 was such a hotbed for light painting!

Check these images out, they are amazing.

I found these two initial images from Make, but once I did some digging, it was like Contrast Photo City.  Check out these other beautiful images I found digging through the Life Magazine pile:

Moving.  Enough said.

Pablo Picasso, The Light Graffiti Artist

This is extremely awesome – light art blog Light Paint posted some Life Magazine images from 1949 of Pablo Picasso creating some light graffiti.  Talk about way before his time – can you imagine what the world would be like if that guy, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Niels Bohr were still alive?

Check out these images – this is one of the coolest things I’ve seen:
