The Street Light and the Moon

About This Photo Share Purchase This Photo
  • Location: Riverside, Illinois

One of the most unique qualities of Riverside, Illinois is the town’s street lights.  Unlike most other cities that have mercury-vapor or high pressure sodium lights, Riverside still uses gas lights as a nod back to its roots in the late 19th century.  The lights look ornate and antique and definitely add a level of class to the surroundings that you don’t see with normal street lights.

In this photo, I managed to frame the moon in the lower right corner of the shot.  Just the fact that the moon isn’t a bright, textureless orb is a fantastic get for me.  I still have yet to figure out how to get two different intensities of light sources to have texture in the same picture without bracketing the photos and then combining the results.
