Stockholm at night - Slussen
by *kaffemugg

Taxi Cab, Taxi Cab, at the light
Won't you take me on a ride through this city at night
I got some money and I'm feeling fine
I ain't in no hurry so just take your time
Some people wanna die young and gloriously
But Taxi Cab driver, well that ain't me
I got a cute little baby down at 12th and Vine
And she opens for business just about closing time
Ah hey hey, ah hey hey
City of night, city of night

You're welcome!
Wonderful capture, Billy. Great tones, outstanding sharpness and a perfect exposure. You just gotta love a nighttime cityscape in monochrome. I guess my love of this style of photography began when I fell in love with black and white vintage movies. Humphrey Bogart would be right at home, waiting on Peter Lorre, wearing a trench coat and lighting up along the waterfront on the right side.

I hadn't thought about going Noir! When the weather breaks I am going to head back downtown for the sole purpose shooting a series of noir images! I might have to recruit my daughter and some of her friends to model the fedora and trench coats! :)
I really like the idea of doing a noir series there. It would be interesting to say the least. I hope you can make that happen. It would be unique, and I'll bet that Wiley and her friends would enjoy it as well. It would be like dress-up for teens. Of course, you must spend hours in front of TCM watching old black and white dramas. I'd recommend The Maltese Falcon and Casablanca since both of them are, in my humble opinion, the movies that create mood and tension using only light and shadows.
