Out At Night, Dead By Light


Ominous title to this post. As I was driving around and taking photos of the empty streets I could not help but to remind myself that German Jews, during Hitler's reign, were often killed for being out past curfew. A sobering reminder to never take freedom for granted.

I have a challenge for those who care enough to take it. What is the object I photographed below? Amazingly, to me, I did NOTHING to the image. It looks manipulated but I did nothing- I swear! It was a photo I took from my car window as my Jeep was moving.

Great images. Love he first one with the flag so well illuminated, and I, too, think the second one is of a passing train. Nice, whatever it is.

Passing train is too simple ..It is a fish riding a bicycle

It looks like it might be a train near water...or a building with a lot of lights? do tell!

The second one appears to be a moving train. Both images are interesting and wonderful!

You said your jeep was moving .to me this is meant to get us off the passing train ,which might look like this if you weren't moving..So you are taking a picture of something stationary..Why is this image linked with the flag on the wall>> Is it the wall or the lights next to the wall at a slow exposure with the jeep moving?
