We have seen some great results on the theme of Night before. This week's theme is devoted to that subject. Thanks all.

Wow... Gorgeous pictures.

This one's from 1979 when I took a trip to London and a friend and I decided we'd try our hands at night photos.

These are all great photos.

I may have posted this one before but it fits the theme. It's the
Wills building in Bristol at night (hence the lack of daylight.)
I thought it came out very well considering it was taken without
the aid of a tripod or safety net.

Liz: Lake Ontario looks remarkably calm in that pic!
Martin: (giggles) at the safety net bit lol. VERY nice capture
Pyonir: w00t! time-lapse tail lights. You're my current hero lol
Zebra: love the white on black
Flopsy: lovely lingering light in that photo. I'm not normally a fan of "borders", but I really think the minimalist orange line complements the picture PERfectly.
Gees: liking all your photos
Ertrum: very nice. Are there more?

Here is the desk at work on night duty. It was a fairly quiet night so you'll see the laptop on the desk with FunTrivia ready to go wink If it's busier or quieter it gets messier!

Szabs: ok, that is the most "surrealistic" REAL (unadulterated) photo I've seen in many months. That red moon is FABulous, as is the statue and the "viewpoint". I dearly hope you've enlarged/framed/hung that particular photo!

Ertrum: All the London night scene ones you've posted so far are interesting. The lights make the buildings look "alive" somehow. Spooky but VERY cool. Thanks for sharing them.

Satguru: well the camera may not have been "happy", but it's certainly an interesting result. Rod Serling could have used that pic for one of his Twilight Zone episodes : ) I like it!

Chavs: lovely capture, and welcome!

A very BLURRY photo, but these are the 3 pumpkins I carved for Hallowe'en last fall (and it's the only "night" one I could readily find that I hadn't posted already lol)
