Mood Lighting

I found this one when going through photos I shot last winter. It's just an ordinary street in a sleepy neighborhood. But that moon! That moon! I can't resist.

wonderfully composed photograph. I love the light. Reminds me of this Maxfield Perrish illustration

WOAH!! You aced this one. I love the connection between the moon and the lamplight. A great mystery could occur here. Or maybe a new romance! Aaaah! Moonlight.

Beautiful photo and Benny Goodman too. Takes me back to my sangin' days. I had to jump over to, "Memories of You" and "Stardust." Thanks for lighting up my morning.

Thanks, everyone!

Welcome ramy-V!

I remember being so disappointed with this shot because I didn't have my tripod and had the camera propped on the top of my car. I did a 3 second exposure but the ISO setting was wrong. It's not perfectly sharp and I didn't have a good enough lens to really capture that moon...

But when I looked at it again recently, I just thought it was atmospheric and cool! Maybe I'm just lowering my standards. :-)
