Your Monday Photo Shoot: Night Shots

"I haven't a clue as to how my story will end. But that's all right. When you set out on a journey, and night covers the road, you don't conclude the road has vanished. And how else could we discover the stars?"


Your Monday Photo Shoot: It's Night! Take a picture. Naturally, taking a picture at night (i.e., where it's well lit and indistinguishable from day) won't do; take a picture that captures some of the quality of the night time. Also: No sunset photos. We'll save them up to do another time.

I love the view of the San Francisco waterfront, as seen from Treasure Island. This photo was taken last April, as the city was celebrating the 100th anniversary of the 1906 earthquake. There were city wide events, but my favorite was the light show at the Ferry Building, on the Embarcadero. A rotation of beautiful colored lights lit up the building, and the night, it was a gorgeous, peaceful sight. :)

I love the way city lights reflect off of the water at night. These are wonderful pictures and great entries for the Monday Shoot.

Those are really cool shots. I like the rays of light, and the colorful, toy-like quality of the day shot.

Hi Carly. Nice shots. I like the first one. I like what long exposures do to water.
