In the still of the night

As I mentioned in my last post, I have been working late shift this week. One night when I finished work (2am) the river was very calm and it was a beautiful clear night, I was not tired so I went into town to take some photos.
My first stop was at the docks. There is a building, which by day is a very ordinary building, but by night, has a brilliant blue light around the edge of the roof that makes the reflections in the water very pretty.
Then I came across another building, which looked beautiful at night and I was in awe of the stunning reflections in the water.
Next, I made my way into Salamanca. Those of you who are regulars to my blogs will know I frequent Salamanca Markets and may have seen some photos of Salamanca Place with the markets in full swing, but it is a very different place in the middle of the night.
On to the Casino, where I took a couple of photos but when I downloaded them onto my computer, I realised they didn’t turn out. There are little coloured squiggly lines throughout the photos. The squiggly lines actually make the photos look quite nice, so I have added two of the best (?). :)
On my way home, I drove back by the docks, saw a visiting boat/ship with all its lights on, and thought it might make a good shot, so I stopped again and found a few other scenes worthy of a click from my camera.
My final stop on my nighttime excursion was an area by the river with views over to the Tasman Bridge, of which I have taken nighttime photos of previously.
I had fun driving around town in the middle of the night, stopping every now a then to take some photos. If you find yourself awake in the wee small hours, I can highly recommend going out and discovering your town and seeing it from a different point of view. I hope you enjoy looking at the photos just as much as I enjoyed taking them. :)
