Brassai_Paris By Night

I have found that I am most attracted to photographing my site at nighttime.  The shadows create a play of light and dark shapes that play through the image.  I was looking through the Brassai book at the library the other day and I came across this image and it grabbed my attention immediately.  Every night when I ride home, the orange and green lights of the street lamps fall through the leaves of the trees and through the gates, casting eerie shadows across the ground.  The shadows seem to be moving as I ride my bike down the curving, dark path.  The night before I found this Brassai image, I had stopped in the park to snap some pictures…
