The view through my porthole….

When I was away recently, I was intrigued one night by the view from my porthole when docked in Havana. May of the buildings at the port were old disused warehouses, or so it seemed. But this dilapidated building had a bright light shining at the far side, all night as far as I could see.

Of course, I love dilapidation and decay, so I had to take an image:

ISO 1250, 1/25th second, f1.8 handheld…not too bad, eh? A modicum of eerie atmosphere…as a monochrome image, which I might try, it could be a film noir still….

  1. …of course! I love your shots of these motifs.

  2. Worth the shot, Sue, and it worked well. For 1250 ISO, it is very good.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Love this. If you are enamored of dilapidation, I will send you a selfie…ha, ha!

  4. You never rest! But I can understand why this was irresistible. Darkness and mysterious lights through a pothole – the stuff of noir indeed.

  5. Hope you had a wonderful trip Sue. I agree this is a very eerie effect.

  6. Love this! I have a thing for window shots and this is so intriguing!

  7. It does start to make you wonder what was going on in there.

  8. A fine piece of decay, Sue. And mysterious too.

  9. Such a moody, evocative photo. Loved it, Sue.

  10. Somebody’s late night workshop? Or something more sinister? ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Yes, very moody, I like it a lot.

  12. We will quietly back away and not even consider the word “smuggling”?

  13. Terrific image, Sue …. you know how to handle light and dark shades.

  14. It doesn’t look noisy. Nicely done, Sue! I like the mood.
