Cozy and warm inner glow - nice snap! I guess it's a train bridge?

I like this a lot, Julie! The light, of course, is wonderful, but I also like the way you composed this so the eyes follow that swooping curve...

Beautiful shot!

wow... I love this one ... caught at the perfect time for clarity yet with the glow of the lights

I like the contrast between the cold dank outer brick and the warm inviting underneath. It's amazing what a bit of lighting can change!

The warm inner glow makes this photo look just fantastic!

As to the newspaper building, yes, it's Deco, although (and gladly) the wonderful interiors are more dated.

Great photo, Julie.

Lois said...

Wonderful light and composition in this shot Julie! It's lovely.

Julie said...

What do you think the white is? At first I thought pigeons, but now I am thinking the angle too extreme for them and this is more likely to be chemicals leaching from the bricks. Any thoughts?

The glow makes it look rather glamorous. I think the white stuff must be lime seepage from the brick mortar which was commonly used in those days.

This puts a whole new spin on the "Golden Arches".

What a grand series you have here. I LOVE this one especially although I like them all! That rich color under, took my breath, literally!!!!!

Great warm colours as you say. I love these kinds of spaces but tend to stay clear of them from dusk onwards. The one and only murder in Lancaster that I know of whilst we've been here happened in such a place. Two men killed a homeless guy camped out under a road bridge. Terrible stuff - sorry, but this kind of image always brings that shocking event back to mind.

Julie said...

That is probably why this is lit, Eamon. I took this about 6am ... I would not go anywhere down there unless it were some semblance of daylight and there were a fair few other folks around.

What you felt looking at this, then, is what I felt looking at Sean's photo of the little boy jumping from the black line to the white square. Just too much like an event in England about 12 year ago. Sorry to do the same to you.

Arches are amazing structures. The warm inner glow makes the shot perfect.

Sorry for the absence. Life and work caught up with me. At the end of the day, all the energy and brain cells I have left is to post a photo and go to bed.

Anyway, love the glow under the tramway.

Fantastic! In a way romantic and mystic, but also a bit scary....... what's in them to make them glow red?

AB said...

A nice shot - interesting shapes in the arches and a nice contrast between the subdued colour of the grass and the warm colour of the light.
