Spotted!

Downtown Queretaro at night
My birdies are on the loose! ;)
We spotted them Sunday night when we went took Turbo for a stroll downtown.
That beautiful street is called Calle Libertad (Freedom St.).
It reminded me a little of Van Gogh's Café Terrace at Arles, France.

This is beautiful and it looks warm with the light (warmer than here for sure). I agree, it does remind me of the painting.

How do you get your birds onto your photos? I always wondered...

This is so beautiful! I recently went to St. Lucia and the stars were so bright from our secluded beach. I tried to photograph them while my husband laughed at the impossibility of my efforts.
I think I need you to paint the sky in my memory!

Such a pretty street, gorgeous lighting, and I love the effect of adding the birds. That's one of my favorite Van Gogh paintings, too.

Great night shot. The street is very nicely lit. The color of the illuminated buildings looks good with the dark sky. This definitely does remind me of Cafe Terrace. The two birds add a nice touch, not too many or too few.
