Goodnight Raleigh - a look at the art, architecture, history, and people of the city at night

John Morris – Publisher Emeritus

“I first started taking photos of Raleigh at night seven years ago, when I moved here from Asheville. I was initially disappointed at the apparent lack of a thriving downtown scene here. The years went by and I found myself there more and more at night, taking more photos along the way. In the summer of 2007, I decided to start a blog to show what Raleigh was transforming into.”

After 9 years, I have now since moved on from Raleigh. Goodnight Raleigh is now in the talented and experienced hands of Raleigh Boy, Bryan Regan, and Ian F.G. Dunn. My new project also focuses on urban life: Chicago Patterns.

I enjoy looking at this site and reading about the subject in your pics. I was wondering if you could tell me what type of camera you use to capture such great images at night?

John —

What a fabulous photo of Small Paul at The Mecca! Thank you so much! Not shockingly, I lost your email address within hours, but here is mine. Would you be able to send me a copy of the pic?

Thank you again for a wonderful memory,
