Warning: Don’t adjust your monitor
Like many other photographers out there I am not so good on the night shots, mainly because I don’t always carry a tripod and to be honest, unless you can find something to rest your camera on to keep it ultra steady, night shots without one are usually only fit for the recycle bin.
Saying that, I have attempted a few during Lisa’s ‘One Day, One World’ project and had some limited success with the fireworks. And I posted a few from San Diego on my old Postcards blog that were OK.
But these are from Victoria, BC, where I just had to capture that fabulous Legislative Building lit up by over 3,000 bulbs (how do you fancy changing those light-bulbs?) and a few other colourful scenes around the Inner Harbour.

The header photo is an example where lights at night become blurred – I love the car headlights and rear lights forming that stream of colour, but the building bulbs ought to have been sharp. Oh, well, I shall have to keep on practising these sorts of shots. And take the tripod with me!
