Kabukicho after dark

kabukicho night photography


If you are looking for karaoke (カラオケ), all-you-can-eat yakiniku (焼肉食べ放題), a drink (居酒屋), or something a little seedier, you are sure to find it in Kabukicho. In fact, you can probably find what you are looking for at a dozen or more different establishments in Kabukicho. Today’s photo is of the approach to Kabukicho from the Shinjuku Station.

Old Town at summer's dawn -- Gävle, Sweden

I took today’s photo at 2:29 a.m. in early July in the farthest place north I’ve ever been–Gävle, Sweden. I had no tripod so there are no photographic tricks of light here. The shutter on my D7000 remained open for a mere 1/200th of a second. The sky never became totally dark on this evening/morning. A long sunset turns into a long sunrise this far north in the summer. I was walking back to my hotel through Gamla Stan, Gävle’s “Old Town”, from the Getaway Rock Festival.

The Old Town of Gävle contains many buildings from the 17th Century and the cobble stone streets are also from that time period.

I made good on my earlier promise to post an evening pic of one of the most picturesque shopping streets in the world.

Copenhagen after dark

I miss late night/early morning walks or bike rides in the summer around the lakes bordering Copenhagen.

Amsterdam after dark

Although the photo I previously posted featured perhaps Amsterdam’s most famous spot for night photography, it certainly isn’t the only part of Amsterdam that looks great after the sun sets.

Amsterdam after dark

On my last night in Europe this summer I went for a walk with my camera and tripod. I had seen this location the night before, but I didn’t have my tripod then.

This night shot was one of the more time consuming and complex ones I’ve ever done. From the time I arrived until the time I took this photo more than 30 minutes had passed. At first it was too light. Then I couldn’t get everything in. Finally, I fully extended my tripod (to over six feet), had it perched precariously on the top of a bench, and then finally I pressed the trigger for this 15 second exposure.
