Graffiti in the sky with diamonds

I am becoming enamoured of night photography. Here are a few of the ones I took on the trip to Strathcona Friday night.

From the first bus:

OPEN. A good place to start an album.

From the SkyTrain, the bumping, jerking, swinging, all-over-the-place SkyTrain. The camera was anchored. The sky graffiti is entirely the work of the train:

Down arrows. And a bridge over the Fraser.

Office building, MetroTown.

Ghosts of giraffes over New Westminster.

Leaving a station. With reflections of the train ceiling. This photo, especially in full size (click on it) draws me in, then makes me dizzy.

A pair of light-worms heads into town for a night of celebration.

Sign on the dotted line.

Almost there. On foot, now:

Jewel tones on Hastings, at my bus stop.

The lights fading: Lamp over a door at the corner.

Had to provide my own lights here.

And tomorrow, I'll be back to a daylit world. I like that one, too.


  1. I love your night photography! although I was a bit dizzy after seeing the last few photos :D

  2. Thanks, Raul.

    And welcome back to Vancouver!
