EMPS: A Night at St. Michael's

For the Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot, Carly wants to see some night photography. As it happens, I worked until midnight Wednesday at St. Michael's as part of a long day working at both jobs. This is where I put my dying camera (long story) to the test. Here's the best of what I got:

This was the most interesting thing I managed without flash. I like the angles.

I really wanted to get the camera to see what I saw here, but it just wasn't capable of that. I've lightened this a lot, and used the de-noise filter. That's not a window with bars on it. There's no glass, and the "bars" are saguaro ribs. (Check out the link - it's one of my favorite blogs about Arizona flora and fauna.)

I had to resort to flash for this, and I was afraid it would make it look too much like daylight. It didn't.

And another shot of the garden just outside the front walk.

The Clarion Write-a-Thon has begun! More on that anon! (My main blogging about this so far is on my LJ and fiction blogs.)

Beautiful garden in the night scene! Here, too many bright lights when night fall.

The angles are interesting. The night garden shot is fun.
