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

Ben Spiker – Contributing Photographer

I work downtown. I have a cell phone with a camera lens. My particular model of cell phone, I discovered some time ago, has a knack for creating some strange and interesting images, and if you know how to talk to it just right, it can create some pretty cool distortions too. So, when I am out and about in downtown Raleigh and elsewhere, I often snap pictures with my phone.

Ben Spiker grew up in Raleigh, and lives in Raleigh with his wife and two cats. He also works in downtown Raleigh, the best part.
