    I was drinking on New Years eve, that's for sure. And this picture was after midnight during the Chicago fireworks display. I had no business handling my camera but I did... and I got this picture... and I have NO idea what caused this distortion.

    I think I drank myself into a time warp and managed to capture it on silicon.

    when i saw this, i thought...he's playing with us..that looks like an image overlay.

    now, i'm not sure as the 'zoom' explanation seems like a real possibility.

    I concur with that assessment.

    It really is the answer.

    The Photo Themes have a theme thread on "Zoomers and Shakers" ... zooming in during exposure is not new. Many of us have tried it - years ago already.
    So yes, you created a cool photo here! Wow. It really shows that you must have been drunk alright :D. Or you're just telling us this and this photo makes us believe? ;)

    I started photography in October/November-ish. So I think it's totally neat.
