For my third week of the 52 Week Project, I decided to jump into night photography.
Armed with my D90, my kit lens (18-55mm/3.5) and a friend’s borrowed tripod, I drove off to the West Mountain. I will likely try night photography again in the future, but I wanted to give it at go near the beginning of this project.
As always, sound off in the comments, especially if you have any tips for night-time photography. Or, if you have a suggestion for a future weekly theme!

An abandoned sanatorium in Hamilton, Ontario. I found the site at night, had to shoot it and am excited to go back in the day and shoot some of the derelict interior.
