I took these the other evening when I had lit some candles at home. It was quite tricky to get a good photo but I think I got it with these apart from the burnt match which I dropped because it was about to burn my fingers.
Old style lamps outside the Treasury building in Murray St, Hobart at dusk and street lights in George St, Sydney taken as we walked back to our hotel from dinner.
Yes, it is that time again when people start to put out their decorations. These are from last year though.
I knew that this challenge would be a tough one for me. I live in the country and my house is just outside of town. There is no street lighting, few houses and to make it even more fun I can’t see very well in the dark. However, as it is winter it is dusk at about 5:30 pm so I ventured outside to see what I could come up with. But first, here are some I prepared earlier. (You know I love saying that.)
Now, for this evening’s efforts. These were taken at about 5:30pm and it was barely light. Half an hour later and I would not have been able to see much at all. I carry a small torch in my handbag if I am catching the bus home at this time as it is hard to see to cross the road. I did not turn on the front porch light and the back one does not work so the driveway is lit with my two remaining solar lights.I bought six two years ago, the others were taken out by Cindy running into them, the garden guys with their whipper snipper or the postie who hit the one I had by the letterbox (at least I think it was the postie). You can see the two solar lights in the first picture. The second one is my favourite, it looks pretty good in colour too. You can see the lights of the neighbour’s houses and the headlights of an approaching car.
