Oh, the lights at night in the city! Can this shot be any more London? We’ve got a double-decker bus, taxis, Big Ben, and, if you look closely off to the left, a red phone booth and the underground sign. Can you imagine this shot during the day? Boring!
Looking at my photos of London at night, I just want to go back, and shoot and shoot and shoot… Every city has a different energy. And that energy changes between the day and the night. London’s hustle and bustle doesn’t stop when the sun goes down, it just gets lit up. And beautifully too, the city seems to celebrate the night with its lights.
For all of my UK readers, I will definitely be coming back to London. We have friends there to visit the next time we come and now, after going through my photos, I’m itching to do a photowalk at night too. I’ll let you know when, so you can join me. Probably early 2011!
So, are you ready to get out and capture your own night shots? Tomorrow I’ll finish up the “Six Days of Night” with an Exploring with a Camera post on Night Photography. And after that, you’ll have everything you need to try it out for yourself. I can’t wait to see what you capture of the night!
