A not-so-regular Hackney night

The fascinating part about night itself is that a tiny bit of light makes things way more interesting than utter darkness would be otherwise. Light gives us a slight idea of what holds a city together or what makes it fall apart. When I went to Shoreditch last week, it was initially to see a gig and to have burgers (What else?!), however we ended up on a massive rooftop that gave us an even more massive view over London.

Netil House is a new space that’s used by photographers, designers and other creatives who regularly host special events for the public. This time it turned out to be a supper night lit by candles and some far away skyscraper lights… The view was absolutely stunning, but have a look yourself! Good luck with identifying houses and people, I’m well aware that these might be the darkest pictures I’ve taken in a while.

  1. I totally agree. Night makes the city come alive! Shanghai is transformed as the sun sets and the neon lights on everything burst out in colors!

      Whoa. That description just makes me want to have a film screening on one of the highest roofs in Shanhai tonight. But I guess London’s not too bad either. Enjoy further colourful nights out there : )

      • My old apartment building was 28 stories and had a roof to hold a film screening (if you picked the lock). That woulda been a great place with a sick view! But I agree, London works quite well too!

        That is incredible! You must have felt like an absolute boss living up there ; )
