Driving at Dusk and Posts of the Week

This was the view from the passenger seat one evening on the drive from my cousin's place to mine. I just thought I'd share it with you.

I love lowlight images and this one is very good.

Dan said...

Like Adrian, I share his view. There is something magical about images captured in low light conditions.

Love the new look! I couldn't imagine how one of my favourite BLOGS could get any better... but you continue to amaze!

It's time for prime time, Hillary. Get it syndicated.


Explore. Dream. Discover.

Mage said...

Thank you so much for liking my photographs. I too love the Comic Con pictures. G's trying to get tickets for next year now...or volunteer jobs.

In your driving image, look at the overhead lines. We are so spoiled here as most of ours are underground now.

Reminds me of growing up in Chicago. Now that I live in the country, we don't have traffic like that...and no one could make it look prettier than you!

Bob Bushell said...

Beautiful dusk Hilary, there should be a prize for that.

Out on the prairie said...

The town I live in is so small a traffic jam is 8 cars.

Slamdunk said...

Thanks for the recognition Hilary.

Lots of cars--something I don't normally see, but did last week after traveling to a couple of big cities.

Hilary said...

Thank you all very kindly. I appreciate your warm comments and kind support.

Jayne said...
