I was heading towards the car to pick up my son when this glowing pizzeria attracted my attention. My son would have to wait a few extra minutes.
We are passed peak blue hour, which I spent capturing yesterday’s courthouse. But, there’s still a hint of blue, especially after I post-processed the image. One of the frustrations of shooting urban landscapes here in Central Texas is the short 10-15 minutes we have to get that beautiful, electric blue. To my surprise, when I was in Amsterdam, the blue hour really lasted that long, or even longer. That was an urban photographer’s paradise, not to mention the fantastic European architecture.
This building doesn’t match the history or ornateness of the European greats, but the warm red glow looks inviting. The restaurant was closed, but I could still make out the last remaining customers finishing their meal.
