Lens-Artists Challenge #284 – Night and Day

I thought YES, when I saw this challenge, I could do this one with no problems. So thank you Sofia for being our host and picking this one.

You can get more inspiration from Sofia’s post on her blog PHOTOGRAPHIAS.

I didn’t participate last week as I am not really a poetry person, and it didn’t click with me, sorry.

For this week I have chosen my wonderful city for the inspiration. I photograph it during the day and at night, so it seemed like a good place for me to start.

First I have the Evan Walker bridge. The photos are all take from the same place but you get the idea of what it looks like during the day compared to night.

Next is one of my favourite views looking across the river to the Sandridge Bridge and beyond.

How could I forget my favourite bridge, the Seafarers bridge.

The next bridge along there is the Webb Bridge. I know Anne really liked this one.

Then I thought what about the skydeck, I have a day and night image of the river.

Do you think that is enough? Nah, I have one more place to show you. This is a walking bridge that leads to the city in Birrarung Marr.

Really I could go on and on. I have so many photos taken at different times of the day.

Thank you Sofia for giving me an opportunity to go through lots of my older photos.

  1. We love these! It’s awesome to see the innovation of many structures when we travel. The webbed bridge almost looks like a museum or PAC building from the angle you took it.
    I think the best part is how you took them from the same place yet, they seem so much more alive at night. You can see the curvature of the streets with the lights and all.

  2. Beautiful and wonderful photographs Leanne. They are well documented and captured. I am sure you had lots of fun taking shots in your favorite city. As for me, in Eswatini where I stay, my favorite city is the city of Ezulwini , Gables and Corner Plaza are my best places to visit♥🔥🔥🔥🙏

    1. Thank you so much. I love taking photos in Melbourne, I really think it is the best place to take photos, where you like.

  3. Well, I knew you might not join in with my poetry challenge – but I did know that Sofia’s theme would be right up your alley! Absolutely stunning! Always something new to show off your lovely city – I understand you are guided by love – every single image is. Thank you for joining in – the treat of the day!

    1. Yeah, the poetry not really my thing, but you are right this one was perfect for me. Thank you Leya, that is a lovely comment.

  4. Leanne, what views you shared here! Every single photo is remarkable. Those night views take my breath away. If I had to choose only one as a favorite, it would be the third monochrome of Seafarers Bridge. The clouds and light are out of this world. Stunning gallery!

    1. Thank you Egidio, I love taking night shots in the city. That image you pointed out is one of my favourites, the long exposure was perfect for the bridge.

    1. I love the reflections too, they are hard to get, not easy to get the river that still. They are the right way up. Thank you John.

  5. Well Leanne, when I saw your name in the reader my first thought was “oh boy, now we are in for a treat!” And I’m happy to report I was so right 😊. Your examples are glorious, especially the twilight and night views. The skydeck view at night is spectacular! Terrific from start to finish.

  6. It’s amazing how different a place can look in day and night! Beautiful photos, Leanne! Your city is very beautiful. ❤️😊🇦🇺

  7. The lines, the colors, the lights, the city, the architecture, all of it wrapped up with your passion for what you love…home… Always a pleasure, Leanne.

  8. You had that when you said you could do the challenge. Of course with your excellent cityscapes you had to nail it Leanne. A wonderful post 🙂
