Walk at Night


This evening I walked along my road in Bisbee, Arizona and pointed my camera into the dark to see what I could see.

Looking for orbs in the dark can be the opposite of everything you’ve learned about composition, saturation, contrast, etc. Until the flash lights up the hillside I have no idea what I’m pointing at or if an orb will be revealed.

It’s a little easier aiming my camera at a building, at least I know where I am, but will there be orbs?

Sometimes there will be just a couple of orbs, perhaps as curious about me as I am about them.

And sometimes there will be a fleet of orbs sailing by.

Take a walk at night and see what you can see.

For those of you who are new to this blog or would like to revisit the explanation as to what orbs are, this might be of help: https://orbsdelight.wordpress.com/2012/10/23/closeup-on-orbs/


About orbphotog

Born in the West, I studied photography and painting at the School of Visual Arts in New York City before being drawn back home to the open skies of western living. My camera is always close at hand to capture changing light and to record what catches my eye. However, it is my recent discovery of being able to see orbs through the medium of digital photography that has sparked my passion for photographing the night. All photographs in this blog are copyrighted by me. Occasional photos by guests are copyrighted by the photographer. Please contact if you would like to order prints.
