Night Train

Street photography taken at night always seems to appeal to my eye.  I think it is the mystery and atmosphere that hide within the deep black shadows.  The shards of light from discrete light sources illuminating the smallest of details.  The grain in the photos from pushing the ASA or digital ISO to the max. A slight movement blur from a moving person or the smallest shake in the steadiest of hands from the slow shutter speeds. What these photos lack in technical perfection are surpassed from the stories contained within them.  Brassai's Paris by Night is the finest example of this type of work. Much more modest are my own two photos taken on the way come from a night out in Dublin. This is will be an ongoing series that I will continue to build on.
