After a few outdoor expeditions to catch the brief appearances of winter it was time for some architectural photography in downtown Buffalo, NY. This evening, I had one of the newer sights in mind: a historic building dating back to 1912 turned Curtiss Hotel with its beautiful illumination and color transitions.
Every time I see some of the new bright additions to downtown Buffalo, whether at Canalside, by Peace Bridge, or now here, one of Buffalo's nicknames comes to mind: the City of Light.
Best time to photograph a light show like this? Blue hour seemed t be a great fit and I tried to time my photo shoot accordingly. I stayed for a while taking advantage of the duration of blue hour almost until the sky turned black. As I went along, I wanted to capture all of the different color variations. I also played with different exposure times either to avoid street traffic or to include it and turn it into nice complimentary light trails. Really long exposure times were not an option as the different colors blended together resulting in a whole new color palette not possible to see with ones bare eyes.
