When I drive home from work each night I head East…all the while looking in my rearview mirror and thinking, “Bravo! Look at that sunset! One night I need to try to catch it”. I get to see just a glimpse of the city before I turn East, and the sun reflecting on all the buildings is gorgeous. Today was a bit of a disappointing one, so I decided I needed to shake things up and do something different on the way home in order to change my mood and shake it off. I drove into the city instead of away from it thinking I’d just pull over and take a few photos. Wrong! The traffic was heavy and the parking was expensive….I think there was an event going on. Anyways…I decided to just drive around and see what I could get from my car. I’d only brought my 70-300mm lens so I think this image is slightly shaky ( one hand on the wheel…one on focusing, pointing and shooting the image ) … but I like the feel … and it brightened my day.

    Really like the rich colours in this, I also like how the light seems so randomly reflected in the windows. Well captured….I think there’s a group for this..Drive By Shooting or something….photos from car windows…

  • Thanks Russ – it was the colors radiating the sun that begged me to drive into the city to have a look….glad you like it – and thank you for all your continued supportive comments…I appreciate them.

    Love that strong orange glow of dusk in the winter afternoons. I get a feeling of nostalgia with the combination of turn of the century brick construction in the hotel and the sixties contemporary design and signage of the parking lot. I don’t know this city but it is like memories I have in my own New England past.

  • It is memories you have….this is in Hartford…I think you know it?? lol

    Winter light(although we are almost in spring) is my favorite time of the year to do shots like this. You have captured this so well. I love the rich colours on the building
    perfect light…well done my friend.

  • Thank you, thank you! ;)
    I agree with you…winter light rocks! It’s only since I started to take pictures that I’ve been this in awe of its beauty!

    This shot brightened your day, and it just brightened mine. The yellow window frames alone are worth the price of admission. But then add the bonuses of the red brick, the green window panes, the hotel sign … I could go on …

  • do you love the hotel sign? because i do!! i think it adds alot to the feel…thanks for looking peter! :)
