This week's curated photostream features photography work that falls under the theme of "After Dark". I chose this theme specifically because of its vague nature in hope to spark the imaginations of the the photographers participating in this week's theme, as well as the viewers. Please enjoy the photos below that were captured by photographers roaming in the dark. 

"A cloudless night like this
Can set the spirit soaring;
After a tiring day..."
-W.H. Auden

Michael Behlen

Michael Behlen is a photography enthusiast from Fresno, CA. He works in finance and spends his free time shooting instant film and seeing live music, usually a combination of the two. He has self- published two Polaroid photobooks--“Searching for Stillness, Vol. 1” and “I Was a Pioneer,” literally a boxed set of his instant film work. He exhibited a variety of his photos at Raizana Teas, a Fresno tea room and health food store; his work there, “Polaroid Prints of Landscapes and Strangers,” was up for viewing during the months of June and July, 2014. He has been published, been interviewed, and been reviewed in a quantity of magazines, from” F-Stop” and “ToneLit” to “The Film Shooter’s Collective.” He loves the magic sensuality of instant film: its saturated, surreal colors; the unpredictability of the medium; it’s addictive qualities as you watch it develop. Behlen is the founder and Publisher of “Pryme Magazine.” You can see his work here:
