City After Sunset

Sometimes it is the darkest skies that have the best colors. After the sun goes down the little light that was left over San Francisco was deep blue and purple and very moody.

Fog City

It is unclear (get it?!?) to me why I would expect to see all of the skyline in a city known for fog. What this view lacks in a crisp view of the skyline it makes up for with a mysterious glow in the sky and the traffic below.

Acrophobia

Hong Kong is an extremely vertical city, with many opportunities to really test out if you definitely do, or definitely do not have a fear of heights.

Hong Kong Nights

Hong Kong is an amazing city by day or by night. There are towering buildings everywhere, and the city really shows them off with a light show every night. Many flock to take in the skyline from across the harbor, but you can also go above the city to the top of Victoria Peak for a birds eye view of everything going on below.

Desert Nights

I take my camera everywhere. On this trip I didn’t expect to do much shooting, but since I brought it with me I had to get out and shoot at least once. The result was an accident, it must have been the only car that drove by while I was out there. I just happened to be in the middle of a long exposure to get the dreamy look in the palm trees. The car went by leaving the light streaks and I knew I could call it a night!

The Underground

There seems to be a bit of excitement around London the last few days, so I dug one of my shots of the city out of the archive and processed it. Night photos like this always take awhile to setup, and this one was no exception as I had to wait for a group of friends to sort out their way home while teetering on the top of these steps. Ultimately they make a good decision to take the tube instead of driving, and more importantly they get out of my shot!

Zooming on Through!

I feel like I’m zooming through the week with the greatest of ease!

Missing the 23 Bus

The sweeping curve of the buildings on this street is unique on its own, but the traffic zooming by at night is what really makes it come to life. I wasn’t actually trying to catch this bus, but the driver thought I was for a minute until she saw the camera setup and happily drove by to give me the light trails I was looking for.

Electric Snowflakes

Sometimes the best snowflakes are those powered by many tiny LEDs. No shoveling required!

The Old and the New

Styles change over time. At one time clunky exposed steel was what bridges were expected to look like. Today the more dramatic white tower and cables of the Bay Bridge really shines over the water.
