Welcome to another Wednesday, the first one of October, if you can believe it (and even if you can’t.)  If I could find a time machine, I’d slow time down a bit, but all my local sources seem to be sold out.

Today’ Photo Challenge theme is “Pedestrian”, which gives several possibilities for interpretation.  My laptop is moving at less than the speed of a pedestrian of the human kind, unfortunately, but I can’t send you a photo of it happening, so I’ll have to look elsewhere for inspiration.

I spend much time as a pedestrian of the walking kind and there are many shots you can’t get unless you’re taking your time.  Walking around Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles at night allowed me to take this anything but pedestrian photo of the city.

    Looks like the stars are on the ground this night.

    • They were, Allan. It was an amazing view and worth the walk we had to take to get there from where we had to park and dealing with all the other people there on a free night.

    My, you were off the mark quickly, Janet. I struggled with this one. Lovely shot.

  3. mz&cho says:

    Lovely! Bright lights are always so hard to capture.

    • I didn’t have a tripod and didn’t really know how to use my camera, so I just rested it on a wall and held it as steady as I could. So I was more than pleased with the way it turned out. 🙂

    Hi Janet,
    I was asked to play along in Seven Day Challenge challenge for black and white photos. I hope you have the time to play along. If your life is too full, I totally understand.

  6. Tish Farrell says:

    Brilliant shot, Janet 🙂

    Gorgeous. Amazing what we see when we slow down a bit, huh?

    • I do a lot of walking, so I see lots of things that people are going to miss. I had a treasure of choices for this challenge once I decided which direction to take. I’m glad you liked this one.

    Fantastic view ,certainly not “pedestrian” in the very ordinary meaning of this word…

    🙂 Dear Janet,
    first thought that came to my mind when I saw your picture was “Los Angeles!”. Gosh, this view always makes me want to pack my bag and fly over.
    Thanks for the image. Wish I were there right now.
    Have a very HAPPY day 🙂

  11. Wonderful shot. Beautiful vista.

    Amazing view Janet. It’s beautiful.

  15. I simply adore seeing the city lights from afar. So many people out there, so many stories… There’s something comforting knowing that they’re all out there, no matter who they are or what they’re doing.

  16. JT Twissel says:

    Reminds me of the movie LaLa Land that we just watched. L.A. is not for pedestrians that’s for sure.

  17. Suzanne says:

    What an interesting photo. I hope you sort out your computer problems.

  18. Anita says:

    Brilliant capture, Janet! The view is just beautiful.

  19. Shibin Dinesh says:

    Lovely photo! Have the feel of NASA satellite photos! 😀

    fantastic view!!

  22. Stunning shot, Janet. I love night shots like yours. Great choice.

  23. I like nighttime city photographs. The lights sparkle brighter than stars. Great job capturing them, Janet.

  24. That’s atmospheric! Amazing how city lights convey density of population.

  25. restlessjo says:

    Wonderful shot, Janet 🙂 🙂 Fulla sparkle!

    I’ve only been up there during the day and the view is uninspiring in the afternoon. But this shot is beautiful. I’ve got to get back there at night sometime.
