Foggy evening on Al. Szucha

I had been hoping to leave the office earlier than I did this evening... As I was closing my laptop, it informed me that it would be installing Microsoft Windows updates - all 12 of them - before it would let me shut down for the weekend. This took a whole 20 minutes. While I was waiting for this to happen, I popped out onto the balcony with my camera to take some snaps of the foggy evening outside.

Below: looking across Al. Szucha towards Pl. Unii Lubelskiej.

Below: looking along Al. Szucha towards Pl. Na Rozdrożu. The benefits of VR (vibration reduction) are visible here - these long exposures were taken without a tripod.

Below: a shot right across the road, looking at the palace of Baron Szuch (the building in the middle with the columns).

Below: a peek out of the window on the other side of our office into the partially dilapidated courtyard (the un-plastered tenements look out over ul. Marszałkowska).

Below: the computer finally finishes installing the updates and I can finally go home. Pl. Unii Lubelskiej from street level. I must say - of the ten different addresses at which I've worked in Warsaw, this is by far and away the grandest. It's good to be here!

My first ever post on 16 November!

Nice pictures. Try setting a Tungsten white balance on them though, auto doesn't cope well with artificial lighting :)

I don't know - I quite like that sharp, tangerine tang to the light! :)
