A Glimmer Beyond the Surreal, Golden Gate Bridge, From the Marin Headlands, San Francisco, California, United States of America

Glimmer ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #225

I come to
At the shadowy peak
Of surreal darkness
Above a world both familiar
And utterly strange

Shrouded beacon
Reaches into the murk
Whisper of stifled radiance
Beckons

Illuminates
A serpentine road
Beginning and end uncertain

Strike out for the unknown
Keep faith the road reaches the bridge

Hopeful glimmer beyond

The Trials and Rewards of Architectural Photography at Night

With this lens
No wider

Already
Standing in the street
Wary of taxis and buses
The trees obscuring
Already

In my hands
No tripod

The light
So very low
Contrast
So very high
Under a darkling sky
Near the end
Of the sun’s
Long good-night

By this light
No darker

click-cliick-cliiick

Exposures times three
Then merge exposures
To become one
In a too-small frame

With tree branches
Encroaching
While taxis and buses
Approaching

Held that lens
In my hands
With low light
And this frame

So this print
No better

But then too
Not bad
