Dancing Lights

ISO 200 55mm f/7 1/160 sec

Its scenes like this that bring me so much pleasure when exploring the city architecture. One of the things I look for, just like in my photo from earlier this week, is the reflections in the windows of the buildings I pass, but often its not the reflections in but the reflections from the windows that creates great beauty.

I often try to visit the city as the sun is starting to call it a day, as it falls in the sky it truly brings the city to life and unleashes its true character. The light being reflected almost has the idea that its dancing and enjoying its weekend after a long cold grueling work week of going un-noticed as office workers look through them and take advantage of all that they do. They turn this wall into a big screen cinematic experience as they sway back and forth, changing shapes and sizes with each passing minute, trying to get the most out of the sun light they have left for the day. Soon after, the sun will have snuck off to share its light with other panes, and these windows will only have the company of street lights and the passing traffic.

    Great image!

  5. The light effects are really great, and perhaps they weren’t that easy to catch πŸ˜‰

  6. I love your sense of perspective and how you see things. One thing I like to do is look at reflections in metal objects. I wish I knew more about photography, but hey, maybe one day I will experiment. Meanwhile, I can enjoy others perspectives and learn from them. I’m going to start looking for dancing lights when I next go out.

    • Thanks Judee!! I think photography is just one big experiment, and Im always excited to see how it turns out. Let me know if you have any interesting finds now that your consciously looking πŸ™‚

  7. Capture like this is a true proof of good photography. great job.

  8. This is REALLY lovely.

  9. Great shot – you have a brilliant and very creative eye

    • Thanks Aisling! I appreciate that super kind statement πŸ™‚ It is said we see in others what we see in ourselves, and I would have to say that is the case here because you too have a very brilliantly creative sense to your photography. I love your detail shots, like the close up of the heavy gauged rope. Wonderful
