Lost power last night from Hurricane Irene. Had to bust open some of my Post-Apocalyptic Justice Squad goodies from the Nerdmergency Kit I got from participating in the MaxFun Drive. One of the things in the pack was this awesome hand crank Eton radio/flashlight/usb charger.
I used my flash to take this pic, it seemed appropriate. You can see a light trail from the long exposure time (no tripod, just hand held). Pretty neat.
