My two oldest have been in orchestra practice for a couple of months now, every other Sunday night. The late evenings have me out past sunset with the other three kids in tow. I don’t bother driving home after I drop the girls off, as I would only have to turn around and go out again in an hour. I’d rather drive around and see what I can see to shoot. As the darkness came earlier and my light ended sooner, I thought my options for shooting were going to run out. But I decided to practice my night shooting instead. I have one camera loaded up with some high contrast, high speed b&w film and have been shooting a few images with that camera on those evenings. I might finish that roll up this Sunday. I’m also taking some color shots along the way. These photos today are some of those shots I’ve been taking. So far, the evenings haven’t been too cool, but I did start to feel a chill in the air week before last.

An interesting series with a common thread. I guess i like the first two the most. Great color. I think you should feel encouraged to do more night work.

Nice shots. I like fotos like these that showcase a place. They have a photojournalistic feel to them.

The glimpse of your town might be my favorite of the days. I really get a kick looking at your town and all the different things. One of these Saturdays or Sundays when I'm free and can actually take the time, I think I might just take a stroll around my town and fill up a memory card. All the different things to see and show from this town.

Great shots you have here, as always. Awesome job!

Encouraging us to do more nights shots...that's got to be a good thing, particularly now night time is becoming longer than daytime. It looks a charming place.

I especially like the bottom 2. I am partial to night shots. They are so fun to set up and you're never quite sure what you'll end up with. Good on ya Micki!

Isn't night photography fun Micki? I like all the images but I really, really love that first one of the door in glass and brick wall... the symetry, colour and lighting. Did you by chance take an image of the shop and tree without the light in it? I just wondered what the difference would be.

Your town is so quaint. You have inspired me to get out at night and do some shooting.

I like what you've done here. I especially like the colours and composition of the first two. This place seems to be rather quiet at night. I like that kind of feeling.

not usually my kind of thing, but for some reason i'm really drawn towards the symetry and simple colours of the top shot. excellent.
