Dark evening clouds over Meadowhall.

When I lived in Sheffield, I worked at the city’s largest mall, Meadowhall. An industrial town, the mall was built to match. Rumor has it that, as one of the first malls in the country, its success was so uncertain that it was designed to be converted to a prison with a minimum of effort should it not survive as a mall.

I have a lot of fond memories of working here, and few that I’d rather forget; still, walking out at night to the dark skies and bright lights was always captivating.

Beautiful lights…

Beautiful lights…

An incredible view of New York City from across the water in Weehawken. The very long shutter speed allowed for some gorgeous light streaking. I love the airplane with the blinking lights.

Our very own Christmas spider!

Sitting next to the tree on evening, this guy caught my eye, silhouetted against the tree lights. Well, you know me – I just had to take his picture!
