Cuddle Up

Cuddle Up

This is from Glen Echo Park. The booth really isn’t for anything. Behind it is a stage area but its all open and there is no reason to buy a ticket from what I have ever seen. I like night photography. This image isn’t that spectacular but I just like the contrast of colors in the image. You get the subtle reds with the hard blue neon.

Before that they put up a bowling alley On the site that used to be the local palais. That’s where the big bands used to come…

Neon At Glen Echo Park

Neon At Glen Echo Park

I have shot this sign before. I figured why not try it again with the Sony A7R and at night with a tripod. Now that I live all of 5 minutes away from the park this wasn’t much of an effort to go there and get setup for some shots. I admit to having a bit of a problem for the first time shooting with the A7R since it was my first time at night. When you do landscape work…
