Another 4 O' clock in the morning shot after finishing a night shift. A delivery area to an office block closed off and cheap night lights the only illumination.

All comments welcome.

The city at night. Locked in to prevent them from coming alive and absconding?

Hi Richard, I have awarded this image with my weekly 'picture of the week' award.
I am really enjoying this series and think its a brilliant subject for a study/project.
I have chosen this image for a number of reasons;
I think the metal shutters across the image (and their shadows) have a strong silhouetted pattern in front of the coloured background.
Also, it really says 'Closed' which the city largely is. There is also a feeling of everybody being asleep, the cars and bikes waiting patiently for their owners to use them in the morning.
Aslo, being behind those shutters asks questions about the camerman, who are they, where are they, what are they doing?
Finally, you can take many different squares and rectangles from this image and have a pleasing abstract in its own right!!!!!!
Looking forward to more from this series!
All the best,
