Dresden at Night

There's something nice about cities at night.  Especially old cities.  The muted light camouflages all the new -the gum ground into the cobblestones, the graffiti, the post boxes and cars.  There are fewer people out, and almost no tourists, so it's peaceful.  The streetlights have a way of bringing out the best in everything too.  The stone buildings glow a little more, the golden angels, chariots, princes, and crosses that crown the buildings shine.  Even people look better -the darkness softens features and makes people seem less angular and strange.

My nighttime run went something like this (with bad iPhone pictures, aren't you lucky!):
