Watching The City Grow Dark
Today’s small stones observation came as I sat in this conference room for a late afternoon meeting yesterday. My picture is a shot of a different street during the daylight.
I’m facing east as the sun is setting. The brown brickwork is warm in the late afternoon sun, but as the minutes pass, it becomes brighter and warmer. Finally it dims; the sun must have set. The sky darkens too, from blue to navy and eventually to black.
The lights remain on in each small window. I don’t see many people, my awareness is simply of many, many windows shining brightly against the darkness of the night.

Lovely post – this could be a commentary of life and society: “many windows shining brightly against the darkness of the night”
I thought the same thing when I reread it in preview. I hadn’t done it deliberately, but it really was how I saw it at the moment. Thanks!
I love how the buildings change as the light changes–just beautiful.
It was a gorgeous night to watch. I’d like to take more pictures with my better camera, but it’s been gray and dreary every day since.
Thanks for the comment! You are always so faithful to stop by and I appreciate it.
