The video recordings to urban light sceneries all took place during the twilight. In the dwindling daylight the approaching darkness dips different urbane sceneries in a steady black. In front of the dim evening sky shadowy sceneries stand out. This slowly arising natural end oft he day is interrupted by the operation of the electric light. The lamps, which are controlled after the course of the sun, light up, transform the evening sceneries and dominate the urban night landscapes.
