What does a photographer do on Date Night?

After dropping off the kids with a friend, my husband and I went to Chipotle, watched Despicable Me 2 and then with my camera, tripod, remote shutter release and a bag full of glow sticks from the 99¢ Store, we hunted for the perfect location. It didn't take long to find a deserted unfinished neighborhood development where a playground, and streets were established, but no houses were built. The playground had no lighting, which was what we wanted.

It took 4 tries to get this image. In retrospect, I should have picked a night where there were no clouds and a high moon. I also need to work on better focusing the camera ahead of time. I look forward to trying this again. The idea came to me and my husband after watching this video.
