Helping Hand at Coffee Making Time

Used the bulb setting on my camera to catch the friendly neighborhood ghost lending a hand with the morning coffee the other day. Don't remember how many seconds I left the shutter open though there was not a whole lot of light at the time.  p.s. exposure time: 2.72 seconds at f11.
