Street Scene


Street Scene, originally uploaded by susanvg.
Pavement, slick from the gentle snow, shines with the night time lights. It's hard to think what cities were like before cars, before electricity. No office towers - without the invention of elevators. Now almost every window glows in the evening. City lights...

  2. I don't get to downtown or see big city scenes often, so I enjoy your photos, Susan.

  3. Stunning photo- I love the composition, focus, colour- everything.

    I think you must have used a tripod to get it just right.

    Well done.

  4. Was in London January 2009. This really brings back memories of the streets and scenes we saw while shopping in that city.

  5. I just love pictures of city lights at night. Somehow these ones have a futuristic look about them. A city without electricity sure is unimaginable, but we Finns go back to basics and nature in our summer cottages, many of which have now mod cons, not even electricity. It's very nice - for a while!

  6. Nice reflections on the road. I often wonder about the amount of electricity used when these many lights stay on all evening.

  7. A great night shot, Susan! You'll have to start posting how you set the camera. Town glitters down the mountain from me, but around my house - inky night.
