Car Orbs


I have a theory that orbs like cars. Just because if I point my camera at a car, I’m likely to get an orb.

Orbs like to fly high so I often have to aim beyond the physical target or else the orb is almost out of the picture.

While I was taking several photos in order to try to get a closer orb to the car, I kept seeing a light on my right as if an orb was saying, “I’m over here now.”

Funny thing is, I am starting to see orbs out of the corner of my eye, and these are the orbs that were floating to the right of the car I was photographing.

Volkswagens are perfect for climbing the hills of Bisbee. They grip the road and are small enough for our hairpin curves.

One of the quaint sites of Bisbee, a car in a hole in the wall.

I’ll end the evening on not a car, but the gate that has appeared in these posts before. Here’s what it looked like tonight. When I step outside on the hunt for orbs each evening, this is my surest location to find them. Not always, but most of the time.

For those of you who are new to this blog or would like to revisit the explanation as to what orbs are, this might be of help:



About orbphotog

Born in the West, I studied photography and painting at the School of Visual Arts in New York City before being drawn back home to the open skies of western living. My camera is always close at hand to capture changing light and to record what catches my eye. However, it is my recent discovery of being able to see orbs through the medium of digital photography that has sparked my passion for photographing the night. All photographs in this blog are copyrighted by me. Occasional photos by guests are copyrighted by the photographer. Please contact if you would like to order prints.
