Night life.....


We don't go into the city all that often these days, but when we do I'm always amazed and very happy to see how many Perthites are out and about enjoying what the city has to offer. Considering these shots were very impromptu and hand held while stopped at the traffic lights on Roe Street in Northbridge, I'm not too unhappy with them. The gold building on the left hand corner above is the State Theatre Centre and on the right the Horseshoe Bridge which crosses over into the city centre. When the Perth City Link project is complete the divide between the city and Northbridge will be no more. Perth is a rapidly changing city, and on paper it all looks good, we'll just have to wait and see the real deal oui! Happy Tuesday I hope your week is off to a good start, take care.....

  4. There's something magical about cities at night - love how you captured a sense of that here! Not to mention, I'm in awe you can drive, snap nice pictures, and enjoy it all at the same time, haha (my brain can only live at 1 speed :)!

  7. The same is happening here in Tucson. When I go for night shots, I look for the exotic people on the corners or blowing fire from their mouths:) I hope to get to Perth in the next couple of years.

  10. Night lights always look amazing.
    Aha! you have answered a question from me. I wondered if you were a
    "Perth-ite" or a "Perth-ian" or.....someone even said a "Perthvillian" -
    can you imagine?

  17. A french man wrote a book called" C'est beau ,une ville, la nuit "(A town is beautyful at night). This title would perfectly match with your pictures!

  18. I can't go into a city without thinking of my Granny's words "I suppose it'll be nice when they get it finished". I've never seen a finished city, have you?
