At Night II



We had been making a few trips to the airport --pick-ups, send-offs.  All of them at night. As I'd mentioned before, I don't really go out that much at night anymore and on these recent nights out, I felt like a little girl allowed to stay out late.  It was nice to see the city lights against the black velvet backdrop of the night sky.  Hong Kong, on any ordinary day, is ablaze with lights at night.  Around Christmas and Chinese New Year, there are even more lights than usual.   The photo below was taken around 11:30 pm last night.  See how bright it still was?  This wasn't even in the city proper.

It's a bit of a challenge to take pics through the windshield of a vehicle driving down the highway (don't worry, I wasn't at the wheel!).  I love the slightly off focus, though, and the light drizzle kinda added to the overall mood.

I rarely go out at night anymore, but if I do our town is so small and very few lights. I bet this is awesome at night. Our largest city for me is about an hour away so never actually have been there much at night. Always enjoy what you share. :) Will be back to link up on Wednesday.

Love the picture! That is one of the pro of living in a very small city...I can go aout during the night and feel always safe. But big cities has big pros too!!! I would love to see HK one day!

I don't like to drive at night but I do love seeing the lights in the city at night. This is a wonderful photo of night life there.

At night through a windscreen, very tricky. I can't say I take many photos at night. Things always look different at night.
