As stars become visible over the city of Bowling Green, the streets shift away from their daytime routines to make room for the flourishing activity that consumes the night. During these hours, Talisman photographers scoured the city providing inside looks into the happenings of people after dark. Street lights illuminate the night as Bowling Green residents expose what the time between dusk and dawn has to offer. On and around campus, WKU students get ready for their night out while 24/7 diners crawl with midnight snackers. Rich character envelopes each passing hour, from the always open gas station whose employees work tirelessly through Saturday nights to the early morning churchgoers who are bright-eyed for Sunday morning mass. Through the night, the city both rests and lives, creating all that is Bowling Green.
