Night is wonderful. My 10pm to 7am sleeping schedule has collapsed a few weeks ago, when I rediscovered the magic of the night. Everything feels nicer at night; epiphanies strike, inspirations visit, and the bells of silence resonate so beautifully.
Unfortunately the rain continued from last week, but according to the weather forecast, the end of the streak of rain is near! I haven’t been taking nearly as many pictures as I would have liked, partly due to the gloominess of the rain and partly due to my own laziness. However, on my way back from church today, I noticed how magnificent La Bourse looked at night from across the river, and my desire to photograph has once again been ignited. Also, Christmas lights are starting to be illuminated, and I can’t wait for the night to come alive in the weeks to come! Let’s hope the rain leaves me alone for now.
Today’s collection of photos were scavenged from ones I took earlier but didn’t post. The four night photos were taken last-minute on Friday after work, as I was walking to the tram stop from the lab. I realize this post is sort of half-assed…cut me some slack, I blame everything on the rain.
This was taken a few weeks ago, on a particularly foggy morning as I was walking towards the bus stop. It must have been at least two weeks ago because I only take this path if I take the bus, and I’ve been avoiding the bus for awhile now due to the construction en route. The actual morning was much foggier than it appears in the photo.
