Lights On!

A silhouette of the stadium lights as they were coming on at Loftus Staidum in Tshwane/Pretoria. This was taken back in our trip to South Africa when they held the FIFA world cup there. I thought the lights coming on slowly would be an appropriate way to represent how some of our brains feel on Monday morning πŸ™‚

  3. I was just taking photos of someone fixing stadium lights the other day. Imagine the process of changing all those light bulbs. πŸ™‚
    Wonderful shot! I love the balance of the bright, fuzzy lights with the defined silhouette.

    Excellent silhouette! I think that silhouette, if used correctly, is a photo technique that can produce some really fantastic images. You certainly know just how to use the technique. This photo has everything a good photo should–vibrant color, a story, emotion, great composition. Really great job.
