Night Stroll

Whenever I go to NY I love to make my way back to my hotel through the busy commercial streets and look at all the stores while they sleep at night. Somehow the windows seem to take another life when the sun goes down and there's no one inside.


In the same way that sun light has a great effect on photos, I also love the effect you get when you photograph windows at night whose only purpose is to attract passers by at night and make them want to coma back the next day.


Jewelry has an extra sparkle, colors have a different shade and shoes look more enticing than ever before... ha!


Next time you go out check out the different light and life your city takes at night. I like that sense of peace and calm that comes when there's no one around and the stress of every day life is gone at least for a few hours.


Have a great beginning of the week and thanks for all your comments over the weekend!

  1. I love wandering around the streets late at night or early in the mornings, you're absolutely right, you see things in a different light. Literally and figuratively! Chanel always have such great displays too!

  11. I actually prefer how the window displays look at night, besides no reflections from the thousands of passersby and without the suns glare, it looks so different. Great shots!

  14. i completely agree, i imagine everything in those gorgeous window displays have this lavish life when the sun goes down and the doors are locked up! oh how fun it would be to be accidentally locked up a new york department store or museum for that matter.

  15. So beautiful - they accomplished the goal of making me want to go shopping - and given all the money I spent this weekend at Nordstoms anniversary sale, that is saying a lot.

  16. Such a great idea to check out a city in a different light. We get so used to our usual routine that we miss out on those random moments (such as the magical appearence of store displays at night). They sure do design those things to draw our attention now don't they?!!

  22. These days, I rarely get a chance to walk in the city at night - if I'm in later, it's usually on our way to something. You do make me want to go take a look though!

  23. Wow, i'd never think to do this! The photos came out great!

  24. Windows at night do have a very special vibe to them! I miss NYC; can't wait to visit it again.

  25. The windows always do look so much crisper at night. It's kind of like the city at night after it has just stopped raining. It has a special feel.
