214/366 [Night lights]

The traffic out of Melbourne along Alexandra Avenue tonight was so slow that I amused myself by trying to keep the camera steady on the edge of the half open car window so I could capture the lights of the city buildings. It took more than half an hour to travel barely a kilometre to the bridge across the river and then negotiate the crowds arriving at the MCG for Friday night football. There were plenty of blurry failures but this one seems to capture the sense of the city at the end of the working week. And I wasn’t driving the car, by the way.

  1. Was momentarily puzzled why it was dark when you’d finished work, before it belatedly dawned on me that it’s winter over your way! Lovely cityscape.
