Ilo city has the beauty of a flower in my opinion, it just has 50 000 persons and although it’s a port with so many fishermen the heart is in the mining company. One day the fabrics are going to be industrial skeletons but for know it’s a brilliant city.

That is a ‘wow’ shot 😄
Thank you, Julie. Happy weekend ^_^
Unbelievable.. I wish I were there.. and be able to see that with my own eyes. So much light! And it looks so warm, the orange skies, happy and sad at the very same time… :)
I think you would see a similar landscape in every city built along the coast. Be happy ;-)
Wonderful scene Francis, it looks beautiful all lit up. 😊
It’s beautiful indeed, and very calmly, there aren’t almost no noise of the city and instead the waves of the sea crashing the shores (although some days some preachers want to yell :P)
1 … 1 … 2 … Biiip … Biiip … Biiip … Hello!? … Firefighters service? … I want to reclam a huge fire! … Please hurry up!!! :D
Oh, I’m so sorry, I was busy taking the photograph >:-D
…and it’s so pretty at night with a longer exposure :)
Thank you, Melissa ☺I needed the precise amount to get the lights of the city but not so much time than the fishermen couldn’t get blurred :P
Well done! Sonrisas :)
It seems to be a golden city – Great shot, Francis.
Thank you, Ulli. It’s simply the public illumination :-)
Sometimes things are simply :-)
Brilliant, you say? Wow… so luminous… it’s like a heart on fire…
I can only hope that the story has a better ending…
When kid one of the things I loved more was to see the cities in the night from the highway. They seemed to my mind lakes of fire in a black universe. In those times to travel in the highway was in complete darkness.
Cities has a life, and naturally an end, but also there is hope that a new city can grow from the older one. Not in vain the civilization and some cities in Peru have thousands of years of existence.
Thank you, Tejaswi ☺
