Glow


As I was walking around town I noticed this little tree, bare but still looking lovely and full of lights in front of the Lew Allen Gallery near the railyard. Even in the cold the lights still filled me with warmth. Do you still have lights around your city or town?

les illuminations durent jusqu'au voeux de notre maire à la ville. Cela donne encore une impression de fete

Perfect!

Lights will live in Barcelona until today. Glow gives some life to small and thin tres like this. Let's add light to our days always.

Lovely! Over here, trees starting appearing on the sidewalks the day after Christmas.

This is a cute tree. I can see some lights around my town, but Santa Claus is not coming to.....

Kate said...

Yes, the lights are still here...in abundance. Our neighbors keep them up forever, or so it seems.

With the lights, the tree seems to make the pattern of a leaf. Very Cool. Lights like this ( I call them twinkle lights) always seem to warm the heart. When I was back home, I set up a little tree w/ lights for my gramma~ she said that it just "warmed up" the place.

It does make you smile to see a little tree like this all lit up. Yes, there are still lights glowing in Phoenix. When I drive home from work I'm surprised at how many holiday displays are still up and going strong.

Not too many lights around here now...come January 1st, most lights come down.

This is a cute tree. Looks a little lonely, though. But, heh, if it warmed you up...that's a good thing!

It does look pretty and give a warm feeling. We still have some lights up.

Nice warm photo.
There are still light decorations here, but they will be gone with the end of this week.

We do still have lights here. I was in town last night and it surprised me to see the town holiday lights still up. I still have our tree up. It makes me happy to look at it and have the colors so I'm stretching it out a little.

RedPat said...

Someone did a fine job on that tree. Yes we still have lights up and on here - I like to see the sparkle!

I like the background colour and composition.

A lovely image! The lights really stand out agaisnt the dark background.

There are a lot of lights still up around here, although people are starting to take them down.

Nice photo. The lights dress that tree well. We have some lights, but fewer and fewer by the day.

Irina said...

Beautiful photo. We still have a lot of lights, we celebrate Orthodox Christmas today, and official holidays are till 11th January.

Steffe said...

I hope not. This tree looks a bit sad I think.

Not very many lights up, a few stragglers are still out there though. Cute little tree to put lights on.
