Artificial Light

For a few months, in Spain the newscasts have started with the same news every day…

New historical record for the price of electricity!!!

Given this prospect, we will soon have to light ourselves with candles and wash our clothes by hand…

The government has lowered taxes on the electricity bill and has thrown a pulse on the energy companies, which have threatened to shut down the power plants… Anyway, I have already complained for a while, now I am going to look for photos with artificial light, when we could still afford it…

At night, artificial light makes our cities more accessible and more beautiful.

La noria / The ferris wheel
El Pilar Cathedral (Zaragoza).
Auditorio Alfredo Kraus
Auditorium of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
Times Square NYPD
Times Square (New York)
Catedral de León
Cathedral (Leon)
Port de la Selva (Girona)

Indoors it makes life easier for us.

La hora del vermut / Vermouth time
Vermouth time in the dark wouldn’t be the same.
¡Fotógrafos a escena!!!
An illuminated theater … Photographers on stage!!!
Cripta / Cript
The crypt of the collegiate church of Santa María (Ainsa) would look very sinister without the light.

Lights can be fun too…

Joaquín Pardinilla
The light accompanies the music in concerts.
Bokeh de corazones
And those Christmas lights, that illuminate our hearts.

I’m going to turn off the light on the blog, I don’t want to think about this month’s bill… 😉

  1. Great choices for this challenge Ana! I’m sorry about your other challenge of electricity. Ours has gone up also. In fact, everything is costing more here. The pandemic has impacted everything. Good luck!

  3. Wow, what a gallery of light! Love every one of them! I have a favourite though – the photographers on stage. How did that come about? And, I have a soft spot for water reflecting light – Girona, I would have loved seeing it myself. And about electricity – it’s going up here as well…

    1. Thank you very much, Ann-Christine, you are very kind.
      I took the image during a guided tour of my group of photographers to the most beautiful theater in my city, I took advantage of the fact that everyone was photographing the seating area.
      We love the Costa Brava in Girona, it has beautiful places.

    1. ¡Bienvenida caminante! no es habitual encontrame comentarios en español, muchas gracias por tu amabilidad.
      Creo que podemos tener varias cosas en común, me gusta Machado, caminar y la fotografía.
