A not totally legally obtained copy of a dvd containing a short documentary on night photography has inspired me to go out with my camera last night, and capture bits and pieces of Leiden. I walked around for about an hour and a half, and tried to avoid the most common cliche’s. I couldn’t create interesting compositions as I forgot my tripod (that was so stupid) and had to set my camera on whatever was available (like dustbins, bicycles, cars, fences, and tree-trunks). Nevertheless, I think some of the photographs are worth sharing.

Here they are!
