WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: DANCING IN THE DARK

Dancing Dark 5

It was very cold. A light breeze riffled the naked trees wrapped in lights. Music was playing by the exhibit building. Alone, in the dark and cold, by the glow of thousands of Christmas, one couple danced.

Not so long ago, that would have been Garry and I. Not that we are such great dancers (we aren’t) but because we were so happy to dance together.

But this night we are not so young. Our backs hurt and the cold is nipping at our feet and fingers. I had a sentimental moment … and then I knew we needed to warm up, inside, away from the starlight and music. But it brought back happy memories and the young couple made me smile.

The steeple of Old South Church seems to grow out of nowhere. Late, seen across Boston Common.

The Common is eerie and empty, the buildings lack form and context. Night is surprising.

Daily Prompt: As Seen on TV – LATE!

Photographers, artists, poets: show us LATE.

City night - light and life. Long after dark. It's late.

City night – light and life. Long after dark. It’s late.

Daily Prompt: Ebb and Flow – NIGHT LIFE!

City night - light and life.

City night – light and life.

In the city, life is happening. Every day, every night. Whatever the season the city is buzzing with people going somewhere, coming from somewhere else. Busy, busy like bees. When do they slow down and sleep?

Daily Prompt: Heated By Fire

Heated. Within the glow of a fire all gather. Night. In the teepee, it’s so warm from the fire. Despite snow falling outside, the flaps are wide open or the teepee becomes too hot for comfort.

Conversation is cool. The fire is hot enough for everyone. In fact, conversation is languid, soft, gentle and sleepy. It’s so warm and the snow keeps falling.
