These photos were taken October 14th 2009. At the time I was obsessed with my camera. I was taking photos of everything no matter how late, how creepy or how long it would take. If I remember correctly these photos were taken on my way home from Andrew Station in Dorchester MA to the Upham's Corner area of Dorchester.
To make this night scene very luminous without the use of flash, I kept the camera shutter open for longer exposure. To keep the camera steady I used a tripod and avoided touching the camera by using a remote trigger. Nikon D80 10 Mega Pixels if you were wondering.
I love the image above because you can see the prudential in the distance. It also illuminates the entire structure to the left. However, I enjoy the softer blue illumination of the image below.
Finally I was almost home. I can only imagine how chilly the October night was.
My passion for seeing the world in a different light is still here. However, I'm not so certain I'll ever have a career in photography. My name is Lloyd Mandrell. You can check out some of my portrait and event photography by visiting www.LloydMandrell.com
