365 Photo Project - Day 27 - Late Nights

Day 27 - Late Nights

Everyday, walking to the car, I pass the stairs that I photographed on Day 9 and I walk out the doors. With the late winder nights, more often than not, the sun has already set before I step foot outside. Each night I look across the parking lot and I see the office buildings surrounding the college with lights here and there sprinkled across the windows. I think about who is in those building and what they might be doing, pulling those late nights at work.

I also love the colors, the light bulbs on the office buildings are a much older style illuminating in a heavy orange color contrasting heavily with the mild blues of twilight. Each time I pass this view I've wanted to take a photo but never felt like the composition was strong enough. I decided I didn't care today and set up my tripod right outside the door to the college.
