Night life – Looking through windows more
I have become quite a voyeur! I now walk along with my head constantly turned to one side, looking through all the windows! I do like to see what is going on inside though the one above is a little different because I wanted to capture a silhouette against the light of the windows.
Necessity, as they say, is the mother of invention and the short days and dark evenings and the fact that I have to do things other than photography for a living, mean that at the moment I only really get out with a camera during the hours of darkness.
And so the window theme will continue…
I took the shot above on the same night as the first one. it was the way the cafe was lit that caught my eye. I like the four lights in a row, the back lighting on the wall and the way the light falls on the glasses and shiny surfaces.
Then another thing caught my eye – the television in the corner. The breaking news being announced is that the Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton) is pregnant. Well this is one way of recording history. I could stand outside cafes with televisions on 24-hour news channels for hours to see if something happens!
And here’s another cafe with the telly on – not much on this time. This is round the back of Piccadilly, I suppose you could call it Mayfair. I like the window frame splitting the man’s head in two, making one half of him look shorter than the other half! There is also a lot going on. The trouble with looking through cafe and restaurant windows is that often people are just eating!
