In Hollywood hookah lounges are the new juice bars.
I have a day of work to catch up on. Be right back.
Nice street capture. I like the motion blur.

Very cool shot. That kind of looks like Peter Lorre.

I'd forgotten all about Peter Lorre - what an interesting character! I like the intense color combined with the b&w portrait -

Only in Hollywood.

4 Mar 2012 6:24am
very nice & interesting!!!!!
4 Mar 2012 6:30am
I like these strong and warm colors, nights have to be unforgettable moments, and the meetings surprising
4 Mar 2012 7:25am
I always admire your night shots! wonderful warm tones and lighting
4 Mar 2012 7:39am
Merveilleux attrait de fermeture des grilles.
Beau contraste des couleurs.)
4 Mar 2012 7:57am
oh right. that sort of hookah. smoking is the new jogging.
4 Mar 2012 8:00am
@Philip: What other sort of hookah is there?
Jolie prise ! Je te souhaite un agréable dimanche
4 Mar 2012 8:05am
The colors are superb and the front of the bar in B & W is great. Magnificent composition. Nice sunday.
4 Mar 2012 8:20am
Lovely combination of elements....hookah lounges, huh---the coming thing.
Have to watch for that here in Danville. ;-)
4 Mar 2012 8:27am
@DULCIE: Lol, do let me know when the first establishment opens. ;)
wieder dieses unglaubliche Licht und die tollen Farben - gut gemacht
4 Mar 2012 8:33am
Superb, go for another spotlight :-) !!

This is superb photography.....
4 Mar 2012 9:29am
That is an interesting phenomenon. I live such a sheltered life. Great shot.
4 Mar 2012 9:49am
4 Mar 2012 9:58am
It's really a wonderful idea, Peter Lorre would have appreciated. I wish I could see such things in Paris, most of the time, those shelters are dull and sad.
4 Mar 2012 10:02am
I love the ghost silhouette passing by, the colors, lights and night mood !
4 Mar 2012 10:26am
Excellent night composition! Superb colors and light!
4 Mar 2012 11:04am
With your signature walking person-perhaps a hooker going to hook a John in the Hookah bar
4 Mar 2012 11:14am
M. is in the streets, ready for a remake you offer to him here beautifully - such cinematic feel, colors & impact, my dear !
4 Mar 2012 11:19am
Forgot to mention the red-striped silhouette that makes the shot ! Have a nice day now*
beautiful colorful night scene with that fading glowing ghost on the left side and the solid art on tzhe wall. a way contradictory of the sort i like.
4 Mar 2012 11:20am
Wonderful night shot. Beautiful colours and lighting. Love the motion blur. Great, Bettina. :)
4 Mar 2012 11:58am

4 Mar 2012 1:26pm
Quelle ambiance ! Super cliché !
4 Mar 2012 1:27pm
A fine street shot. I had an shirttail relative who sat smoking a hookah ... who knows what he was smoking in it!
4 Mar 2012 1:41pm
Great mood and superb colors !
4 Mar 2012 1:54pm
This is so cool Bettina! Such fascinating interactions between color and b&w, the real (that is blurry) and the fake (that is so expressive)! Enjoy all the drama and mood of the night you've captured!
4 Mar 2012 2:02pm
Hey,hey !!!!! Souvenirs're growing up...Peter Lorre was an hero in first movies I saw in my life,in a little place of my City...Glad to remember this......A Nice picture,coloured as I love,Bett'....

I have to echo, only in Hollywood
4 Mar 2012 4:28pm
Oh, so well done, Bettina. Peter Lorre is a favorite, and I love how you have captured the movement of red... Terre just tells me that Chico has a Hooka Lounge now, too. Oh, she wants me to ask if you've been to the restaurant "Polka?" I guess it's not too far from you... Polish food.

4 Mar 2012 9:40pm

5 Mar 2012 12:45am
more added to my education of Hollywood, interesting place, a very nice touch of the blurred person in an otherwise static image...

Great composition...Great colors...Great image...5*

5 Mar 2012 12:40pm
That swirl of a person is the perfect interplay with the guy taking a toke on a smoke :)
5 Mar 2012 7:52pm
I love the mood here, colors and energy are really powerful !
6 Mar 2012 4:42pm
