Spring Green at night, December 23, 2019
Contest Number: 174 Contest Theme: Cityscape by Night Lens: Vivitar Series 1 28mm f/1.9 Camera: Pentax K-3ii Shutter Speed: 1/200s Aperture: F2.8

First, the aperture is a guess; it may have been f/1.9, f/4, or something else. ISO was 3200.

Spring Green isn't a city; rather, it's a village. So this is really a village-scape. It's the eve of Christmas Eve, and most everything that isn't a watering hole has been closed for two or three hours. One solitary figure crosses Lexington, largely obscured by a trash bin on the left side of the frame. This is what passes for nightlife in the village around winter solstice.
