Shoot Nine - Plymouth at Night II

Did you get it - Lima? Carol, Mariann, Peyton, Elaine, Joani, and Doris all checked in this week!

"Nightie Night. . ."

This was one of the storefronts in downtown Plymouth. Lighting was a challenge. First of all there were reflections from the street lights and occasional passing headlights. Then there was the lack of light from the display window.

After much trial and error, I settled on an eight second exposure (yes, on a tripod). But I wasn't done yet. Another thirty minutes in post-processing helped me to get what I was looking for! 

Where in the World?

Better get out the atlas as this year I will be featuring some of the more famous cities of the world! Here are some interesting facts about one of them. Just what city would I be visiting? 

is the second most populous city in its country

is known for its mediterranean climate, ethnic diversity, sprawling metropolis, and as a major center of the country’s entertainment industry.

The city was officially founded on September 4, 1781, by Spanish governor Felipe de Neve.  It became a part of Mexico  in 1821 following the Mexican War of Independence. 

is a global city with a diverse economy in entertainment, culture, media, fashion, science, sports, technology, education, medicine and research. It has been ranked 6th in the Global Cities Index and 9th in the Global Economic Power Index

The city is home to renowned institutions covering a broad range of professional and cultural fields, and is one of the most substantial economic engines within the country.

it hosted the Summer Olympic Games twice and is bidding to host a third time soon.

This will do it: this city leads the world in the creation of television productions and recorded music; it is also one of the leaders in motion picture production.
