Reflections

I like to take walks at night as much as I do during the day. It’s a different vibe, and often a very different sight.


What I love about city skylines like this one here in Brisbane is that darkness doesn’t win. It doesn’t force people indoors like it used to in fear of the dark. The unknown. The city is as much alive as it was earlier in the day, just in a different way.

It’s also very relaxing. The traffic noise is reduced significantly, the crowds are smaller. It’s a great time to relieve stress from the busy day and have time to think. Gazing at the reflections is a great time for personal reflection and for me it’s very valuable.

  1. I totally agree. I took a walk around campus at night last week (it was my first time not seeing the campus sunlit), and it was beautiful! All the interiors that just reflected the sunlight in the day could be seen, and this time, they stood out. It really brightens up a walk!

  2. I absolutely agree. Growing up in the suburbs of Philadelphia, my friends and I were inexorably drawn to the nocturnal city just a short drive/train ride away. The city had a mysterious “otherness”–exciting, dirty, dangerous, vibrant, alive, unsettling–that I still find compelling. Of course, my city-dwelling friends and relatives were just as fascinated by the quiet bucolic suburbs.

    As INXS’ Never Tear Us Apart put it–“two worlds collided.”

    Stunning photograph, by the way.
