Theme Day: Night

Night in the city is often bright. Here's what night looks like when you look up from South Lake Avenue in Pasadena.

The City Daily Photo family is now 1019 strong. I've met people in Iran, Brisbane, Paris, Rotterdam and now a new blog in Herat, Afghanistan. This remarkable community of communicators joins together on the first of every month to share a theme. This month's theme is "night."

To see how other CDP bloggers have interpreted this month's theme, click here to view thumbnails for all the participants.

How funny, and thought provoking! Is Pasadena another city that never sleeps?

You've had some gorgeous lighting in your last few pics, Petrea - it's been a theme all in itself! And the sky behind looks pitch black. Beautiful!

{And Yay, Brisbane!}

Dina said...

So beautiful, your tree! It looks like gold leaf.

Love the colour here, the tree showing up so beautifully against the dark night.

I didn't know we had a blogger from Afghanistan. How marvellous. I'm going over to look. Thankyou, Petrea.

I wonder whwre all the >1000 posters are...they certainly don't post every day.

Petrea said...

Thanks for your visits! We do sleep, Saretta. At least I do.

Lynn said...

Ohh that's very pretty Petrea. Gorgeous.

Thanks for coming over and spotting my celeb pics!

Sometimes I have nothing more creative to say than: Zoinks, that's a gorgeous photo Petrea. :D

It looks other-worldly! Great night post :)

Shell is right: that sky is so black it almost looks unreal.
Something about the lighting reminds me of Christmas and I do like Christmas. Nice choice!

I like night photos a lot, and yours is excellent. Has a surreal quality to it.

Hilda said...

The tree looks almost otherworldly because of the glow. I like it!

Petrea, this is your third beautiful, artistic photo in a row. You just keep getting better and better!

I don't remember pointing this out to you.

Petrea said...

Gee, thanks you guys. For the locals: stand in front of Cold Stone Creamery on South Lake on a clear night and look up. I think the tree was lit by a municipal light, not car lights.

Karin, I'm returning the favor.

I really like the texture in this one!

Splendid image! To me it's all about a warm summer night.
