Downtown Phoenix is known in Arizona for being a bustling city with people constantly out and about like any big city, but I wanted to capture the moments in Downtown Phoenix that show the opposite of that. It feels like a very different experience when you go at night when no one is around, and that’s what my friends and I tend to do. This time, we only went because my boyfriend and I were picking up his roommates from the nearby airport, but I saw this as a really good opportunity to capture the contrast of the bright city lights with the dark sky, and I was able to capture some really nice and atmospheric photos that I’m proud of. Seeing a city at night when it’s not nearly as busy as in the day is a unique experience for people who don’t actually live in the city, and what might be the norm for those working the later shifts around the area can be seen in a new experience by someone like me who only rarely goes down there.
