Nancy from nancy merrill photography has asked us for our lights and night photography.
These photos were taken back in March. I know I have posted some photos from this night but for some reason they are the first real night shots I have done like this.
Every year the council put on this festival of lights. But they also played Chinese music and birdsong.
I got there just as the sun was setting and there weren’t so many people around so I was able to take my time.
The colours were amazing.
The night was perfect.
No wind and the reflections were amazing.

Good morning from a grey, wet and miserable day. Last night it was very stormy outside but inside we were a complete family again. If only for the weekend. About 5 PM I heard a car drive up and some doors open. Then it was a knock on the door. I opened it and was totally flabbergasted to see my daughter standing in front of me. Her roommate needed a driving companion so Ruth decided to pay me a surprise visit. And she certainly surprised me. Her brother knew she was coming but kept her secret too. So it will be a full weekend. Last night Martin worked on her laptop as she was having problems with it and then we stayed up late just talking. It was so great to see her.
So onto this weeks topic by The Daily Post which this week is hosted by MICHELLE W.
This week, share an image of something creepy. Unsettling. Eerie. Disgusting. Go goofy, as I have. Grab a shot of something you find disturbing, but few others do (I’m looking at you, sister-in-law who’s creeped out by balloons). Try a black-and-white shot of something you’d normally photograph, to give it a moody cast.
We can go back to inspiration next week — this week, give us some heebie-jeebies!
So this week I have started off with some mildly creepy photos. I didn’t want to upset anyone with this last photo showing up in their readers.
So why did I stop to put a tape measure next to a rather large cockroach? For one thing it didn’t move while I was taking these photos and for another my son was visiting his sister in Wellington and I wanted to prove that this cockroach really was this big.
I did manage to pick it up and throw it outside.
