When I went to Cape Cod over Memorial Day Weekend, the moon set before midnight. I took the time to do some light painting with the cupola, my new 1.4/85mm lens, and new tripod.
I met with a new client tonight. She lives in Trumpland around West 70th St and the Hudson. After finishing up I decided to walk along the river and get some night shots. It is a pretty night, warmish but with wind. Without a tripod, avoiding camera shake was problematic but I think I came up with a few good images. Before I left though I followed the mantra…(and this is the only “rule” I never break)… I looked down, I looked around, I looked behind me and I looked up.
Lo and behold.
Told you I would be back. I love the night, I always have. I love the different feel, the texture of the air, the shadows, the mystery. I also like the night because no one else is around to interrupt your train of thought, to demand answers to questions you have answered already, to tell you that this project is a crisis and that email must be answered. Eh, I am a little bit grouchy today. Too many people wanting things, answers etc. Que Sera Sera.
Anyway, I love the night and I especially love the night on Blackfish Creek in Wellfleet, Cape Cod, MA.
