Madrid becomes a far more interesting city at night.
One cool autumn night in 2011, I stepped out of my apartment to get some air, and somehow ended up walking around the city for an hour. The pictures aren’t bad considering I didn´t have a tripod, and used a point and shoot camera. Hope you enjoy the night photography! Evening photographs to come soon.

Palace of Linares, which also serves as a venue for Casa de América, is one of my favorite buildings in Madrid. According to legend, it is haunted.
Right near Palacio de Linares is the Cibeles Palace. Real Madrid members and fans gather at the Fountain of Cibeles when they win championships such as La Liga or the Copa del Rey.
The Metropolis Building on Gran Via is often featured in Madrid postcards.
