This week's challenge is night light; it was my choice. Check out my pals for their interpretations on this theme: Womtig, Fishing Guy, Katney, Imac, Lew, and Christine Anne.
Though a regular night light could make for an interesting subject, I chose to go for a broader application of the term. These shots were all taken at night, with a variety light sources. The header was a long exposure from a hotel in Saint Louis. The scene was darker, but because of the longer exposure, the colors came out exaggerated.

|Does the ceiling light count as a night light? Sure, why not!|
