Photography Series Ruhrpott Part Two - the night strikes back

Part two of the Ruhrpott Series. I visited Tiger and Turtle, helped a butterfly, opened the EmptySpace, and yes: I took a lots of sundown photos. It is the atmospheric sundowns in Essen that makes the city a pretty place (at least for about an hour). Therefore this part is "the night strikes back". The photos are in chronological order.
