What a coincidence. I have nights shots too. Amazing. Love them.

You did it wonderfully. Great.

Happy weekend.

I love night shots... My Sony DSC-HX1 can't take so nice one, but I still have your picture to dream of them...

Ebie said...

Nice perspective and reflections! Great spot for a night time coffee break.

Luis Gomez said...

Great street shot at night! I see that you are venturing more and more into the night! ;)

Sunny said...

Very cool! I like the reflection of the lights in the window.
Happy Weekend!

You're inspired by the night!
There are some things that are in the reflection and not on your picture...I like that!as well as the mood, very jazzy!

JM said...

Very well composed night shot, James!

Dina said...

Are those cute little colored lights on the tabletop reflections too?
Nice!

Neat place. How come the streets are almost empty? :)

Gine said...

Alors, toutes les photos de nuit ? Après l'église, le resto ! Beaucoup d'atmosphère ...

lotusleaf said...

What a beautiful night shot! I like the elliptical reflections on the pavement.

Carolyn Ford said...

I like this...I really like this! It looks like a very pleasant street for an evening stroll.

Thom said...

So cool. I love all these reflections in here and again what a beautiful night shot. I love that reflection on the table :) Well done my friend. Have a wonderful weekend :)

Helena said...

Night shots are so cool. I'm looking forward to getting a new camera so that I can actually take them. :)

Gerald (Hyde DP) said...

it seems both cool and warm at the same time.

Greyscale Territory said...

Such a stunning tone of light in this night scene! Beatiful anfled perspective of the window reflection!

Beth Niquette said...

What a cunning piece--I wanted to look and keep looking. I love the simplicity of the table on the sidewalk. Wonderful reflections.

Cildemer said...

Very nice shot! It's so neat!

Lew said...

Great night reflection! Newtowwn and frederick have a lot in common. The old has been preserved and continues to be used.

Elisa said...

Those are great night shots. Well done James
Have a nice w-e

T. Becque said...

That is a nice nightshot.

Cat said...

I love the clean, rich colour in your photo...better than life somehow!! And for nighttime, there is so much light...we can see everything! How do you do it?? I still think you should go to the cemetery...go on James, you can do it...be brave!! Would so love to see the cemetery at night shots...spooky fun and potentially very interesting...especially as see through your eyes! Take care, Cat

Rosadimaggio63 said...

Hi James, mi piace questa foto... uno scorcio di vita notturna !
Ciao :)

Tash said...

Looks like you really got the hang of this night shooting business! wonderful photo, love the perspective, and also the Kitchen sign.

James, how odd that we remember the same tornado! We were in the terminal waiting for a flight to Panama, having come in from Portland, when the sky got very dark and we could see the warnings on the news channel in the airport. It poured rain, but the twister passed elsewhere. The passengers were ushered downstairs and of course I was looking at all the tall panes of glass and wondering what would happen if the winds came our way. I got distracted before I finished the links. So, I'm about to link now :)

joo said...

Adorable street scene!
have a nice weekend:)

Carletta said...

The subtle reflections combined with the shadows makes a lovely night scene!
Someone mentioned the kitchen sign. I noticed it right away for those wonderful shadows.
As always James a wonderful shot.

Autumn Belle @ KDP said...

Wonderful night reflections.

Ładne, szkoda tylko, że samochód ucięty... ;)
Pozdrawiam Marcin.

Evelyn said...

Looks like a nice town James. I love the shop sign - nice shadow of the fork and spoon. Have a nice weekend.

Dimple said...

Gorgeous shot! I put my link in, and when I came back I saw the greenish oval between the power lines and the street sign. Is it a UFO, or is there a more prosaic explanation?

BlossomFlowerGirl said...

If it weren't for the modern car, you could be forgiven for thinking it was straight out of the 1920's or 30's. It has that feel to it.
How do night shots come out so clear and unfuzzy? GReat shot.
Enjoy your weekend.☺

Jan said...

Wonderful shot. Lots of reflections, but I love the one in the cafe window.

Lesley said...

Nice. I do hope no one took off with the chairs, though!

Stickup Artist said...

All the linear elements play so well here. And is that a little lady in bright blue pants way down at the end of the street? Love all the movement created by the broad perspective, the light and shadows, and the reflections. I feel like I could step right into the scene. Great composition.

Judy Sheldon-Walker said...

I love night shots and yours are stunning. My point and shoot is not quite as capable as yours, but then it may be partially my fault too. :-)

tapirgal said...

Today's photo has a very "film noir" feel to it.

Heather T. said...

It's nice seeing a reflection from the night view :) I don't go out at night very often...nearly ever, now. I used to when I was younger but after raising the kiddo's, working and taking care of home life...I am just pooped out at night :)

'Tsuki said...

Tripod, of course... Thanks for the tip and for the photograph adress : I'll ask him what settings he used to get his wonderful night shot...

Marie said...

What a lovely place to be in the night with a camera ;-)

Francisca said...

How rude of me, James! I was here much earlier to link my reflections, but it was so late at night for me that I overlooked to leave you a note. You're really into the night shots, but I can see why: they are coming out so well! Good reflection here!

Riet said...

Sorry I am late commenting James, because of our moving we are quite busy these days. I love the night shot you show us here. Have a nice weekend.

Gabriela Abalo said...

lovely picture, I love night shots.

Have a lovely weekend :)

jlshall (Joysweb) said...

Lovely shot. Reminds me of our "Old Town" area here in Alexandria VA. This is my first time posting a Weekend Reflection, but I've been lurking for a while!

Nessa said...

I really like the way it is elongated and narrowed.

MyMaracas said...

Great night shot. I love the angle and the stretched effect. It makes an ordinary street look exciting and mysterious. Nice!

Sar@h said...

I'm waiting winter with early nights for night shoot.
Even fork and spoon ;-)

Serendipity said...

I love night shots too (just wish I was better at taking them!)

B : ) said...

gorgeous shot

Anne-Ma said...

Oh ! Magnifique reflet. Tu as toujours de belles photos, James.

Stephani said...

I really like this shot! I'm just beginning to get into some night time photography using my tripod. Lots of fun! ~ Thanks for hosting!

Dagrun said...

Beautiful, James! A night reflection is not that commun actually.

(I posted mine Friday, but I've been away so I entered your list just now.)

Nefertiti said...

superbe ambiance que celle de cette photo ;O)

Cheryl said...

I really liked this photo. It seems like the street is indeed alive!

Melissa B. said...

Love this! It's got that Humphrey Bogart feel, too, don't you think?

Rebecca said...

Cute sign!

Mildred said...

A lovely shot! So very much to see and enjoy.

Cezar and Léia said...

Bonjour dear friend,
It's a beautiful reflection, I also love the perspective and the night idea.I imagine it was late at night and a little bit cold.Thanks for sharing! :)
Hugs
