Thursday’s Special: Night Photography (Response to Guest Challenge)

On this link you will find today’s challenger and learn more (unless you know it already) about shooting in the dark πŸ˜€

I like having people around, and Cardinal Guzman is a regular around here. So, give his challenge some thought and effort and leave me your links.



The above photo is from a very nice night walk I took at the end of January. One personΒ (at least)Β among you is bound to recognise the place.

Happy Thursday!



Here is the list and links to the participating posts:

  1. Your birthday trip!
    Lovely shot Paula.
    I love night photography – in urban areas it has the advantage of plenty of light even on a miserable winter night.


  2. Beautiful image Paula! Illuminated. My night photography skills are relatively limited at this point, but I’ve picked up some tips and inspiration from this challenge that make me want to give it another go.

  5. An assignation on the steps. Lovely chilled music! I hope you can be too, Paula. πŸ™‚ Meg will recognise this, I think? Off to learn how to do it from Cardinal. πŸ™‚


    • I think you did fine. You could not invent light when there is none, but to me these photos of your really convey the feeling of a deep blue night and I like them.

  6. Haha, this was a great surprise Paula! I got your email that my guest post was coming up this week, but with my goldfish memory I’d already forgotten about it.
    I’ll see if I can shoot a new night photo and join your (my) challenge. I have my son this week/weekend, but I’ll come up with a solution. Your night photo is lovely with a nice composition. I love walking around in cities at night with my camera.


  7. Amazing shot Paula and only you can make night shots looks like it’s somewhere in a fairytale. Was this somewhere in Zagreb?

  9. I love night shooting, especially in the city where there are lots of light and motion. I think I can conjure up something for this challenge πŸ™‚


  10. I should love to have a stroll with you here Paula. We are just learning a bit about night photography so in the pre-beginner phase I would say. πŸ™‚ Hoping this week is looking brighter for you.


      • I keep telling myself that, Paula. I’m afraid I may be termed a lazy photographer because I don’t want to carry around a camera, lenses and equipment. sigh…. Ergo, my iPhone! Maybe one of these days…! πŸ˜€



  12. I really like the way the lights trial up the steps – great composition. Hope you get some time off work over the weekend!


    • Thank you very much, Sonya. It was an important night for me (the first trip I took after injuring my leg). This weekend will be all about rest. Thank you for caring. xx

    • Thank you so much for the visit, Mark. It has been pretty stressful and busy, and still no end to that. How are you? Wishing you a great weekend.

  14. So many centres of light in the darkness: the warm glow of the building, the star-sparkle of the street lights, and the elliptoid gleam illuminating the stairs. I hope it’s a metaphor for your state of mind in the gloom of your present.

      • I knew you would pick up the “joke” about the stairs. Slovenia? Hmmm. Croatia? I have to schedule a trip to all those magic places. Bonne semaine de vacances. (Dans une semaine. Γ‡a va te faire beaucoup de bien). Bjo.
