|This photo was taken on July 21st, the day following July's full moon. Beyond the line of shipping cranes, you can see the lights of boats anchored offshore waiting their turn to offload their cargo.|
When we where in the process of buying the house, the realtor made a big deal of the night view from the house but it wasn't a material factor in the purchase of the house for me. My focus was the garden space. I didn't even see the night view until after we'd moved in. To this day, it always brings to mind what you see as you fly into Los Angeles (or any big city). With all the lights from the Los Angeles Harbor and the surrounding cities, it's difficult to see any starlight but I thought the big, almost full, moon in this photo created something of a balance between natural and artificial light sources, if only temporarily. I offer it as my Wednesday Vignette. Visit Anna at Flutter & Hum to find other interesting images.
