I can't believe, it is already 3 years since my first Riga Daily Photo. Kinda success! :) This year I took not just 365 photos more, but also got new camera with the help of my readers, started to use twitter for instant updates, got interviewed and many other interesting things happened to me because of RDP. Thank you, my dear visitors for watching this blog and making me keep exploring Riga and surroundings.
Usually I don't post photos of traffic accidents, which are more than regular events in Riga. But in this case, I just curious how driving school car could get there? :) This picture was observed today on 11. Novembra krastmala during sunset.
I must say thanks to all of you, my visitors. And say special thanks to the following guys:

Toby from Indiana
Juan from Spain

These fellas helped me to buy Canon PowerShot SD4000 IS aka IXUS 300HS, which is the best pocket camera in the world at the moment. Unfortunately it is the most expensive as well :) In any case your donations were the best feedback for my 3 years long project Riga Photos!
Psst.. you are always very welcome to drop some coins and your help is very appreciated. Please donate :)
The shortest night in Riga is on 23/24 of June, which lasts about 4 hours only. And by the middle of June there is almost no darkness anymore. These two photos were taken at yesterday evening at 22:00 and today at 5:00 in the morning on Anniņmuižas bulvāris, which is one of the most urbanized streets in Riga.
There are a lot of old warehouses around Central Market. Some of them were rebuilt and still are being in use, some of them became night clubs or even art galleries. But some structures were never renovated and nowadays look like ruins of Ancient Rome.
EF Dambis (EF Bank) is a made-up name for overgrown strip in Daugava by analogy with AB Dambis. This is the third bank on Daugava river towards the sea. Raft cafe is part of Fabrikas Restorans, the fancy restaurant in Kipsala.
Few hundreds meters from Riga Central Market, in the area of old warehouses, there is a real Latvian farmer's market. It opens at sunset, and, I guess, works all night long. Here you can buy healthy products grown in Latvia.
Riga at twilight, or technically at late sunset. The moon and the sun could be often observed at the same time in Riga. Interesting, if it is possible to take picture with both of them in the single frame not using special lens.
Don't panic! Nobody lives in this skyscraper. It is former Riga Press House. For the last 5 years this building is in the queue for demolition, so I have no idea what these people are doing there. But for sure it is not a window cleaning team.
