Photo 52: Color of Light | Blue

Mostly everyone has heard of the golden hour in photography - that time right after sunrise or before sunset when the outdoors turns into a warm, yellow paradise.  But there is a brief period of twilight each morning and evening where there is neither full daylight nor complete darkness.  In photography it's quite simply referred to as the blue hour.   

Over the next four weeks Photo 52 will be exploring the various colors of light in our photography starting with the color blue.  With a new baby that wakes up at 5:00 a.m. and my driving need for caffeine, I've been traveling the neighborhood streets during twilight and was able to capture the image below on my walk home.  I particularly like the crosswalk's lack of travelers at this hour as well as the cool light that washes over the concrete.  It's only a matter of time before its filled with people and the light shifts from a cool blue to the warm yellow of another morning.     


Please continue along to see the rest of Photo 52's images for this week.  Next up is the supremely talented street photographer, Stacey Vukelj, who is not only my friend but fellow New Yorker.
