Structure and the absence of light

A cold march evening. A walk with a friend. Interesting textures. Absence of light. All these pictures have a common theme. Structure and the absence of light. This time no text, no explanation. Only visuals.

Photographic Notes:

This time I actually used my only modern lens. The Fuji 18-55 with image stabilization. This allows me to shoot with really slow shutter speeds in very low light conditions. I mostly had just a few dim street lights as illumination. Sure I could use a tripod to get some clean and sharp images. But I like the grainy and blurry hand held look. It resembles human vision when walking through the dark. Schemes and shadows and suddenly you are close enough to see what was hidden in the dark. I used the Kodak TriX-400 recipe from FujiX-Weekly.
