The Hustle and Bustle of City Night Life – 75/365

I always take my camera with me when I know I am going into the city. Who am I kidding? I take my camera with me whenever and wherever I go, because… you never know what you might see. In the city, at night though, I am fascinated by the lights and the moving traffic and as always I like to play to create effects that will give the feeling of the motion and the excitement you get in that environment.

I remember when, as a little girl, I was sitting on the back seat of the car, leaning against my mother, watching the city lights as we drove through the streets of Montreal at night. When we were on the mountain, the lights below were specially beautiful. Even now, I recall those moments vividly every time I see city lights.

I loved the colours of this one, taken on Sunday night. It really gave me the feeling that I was hoping to convey of a city at night. It is such a sharp contrast from the peaceful country night, lit by stars and moon, moving through the sky with a quiet dignity and grace.
