I enjoy mostly the day, the sun and the heat, but pictures made during the night or the sunset have something special. It’s because of the new perspectives that jump in when the sun is not anymore on the sky and the street lighting is on. The eyes have another glow in the dark, and the buildings are covered in mystery. The shadows play like an unknown dance: here looks like a gargoyle waits to scare you, next some hilarious shape is formed… But, of course, even if the night shots are taken with much more difficulty, it worth the effort. Enjoy some of my best night photos…and remember:
Even if it was a rainy day, I had a lot of energy to go out (that’s maybe because I was kept inside for two days because of the rain and some other personal reasons) and, well equipped with umbrella and boots, I took a walk through downtown, especially to Puerta de Alcalá which was the only remaining major place to visit since the Christmas lights went on in Madrid. And I saw few times, from the bus, that the decoration of La Puerta was very nice, and I knew I had to take a good photo session there. Well, enjoy the pictures of Madrid by night and my new denim asymmetric trench – I’m sooo proud of it, I bought it with a discount price!!!
