In my travels, I have noticed that evening and night street lighting is part of the unique experience for each location I visit. Even within a city, the type of lighting used at night changes depending on the area. Time Square in New York is almost as bright at night as it is during the day, just a different kind of bright. Residential parts of Chicago use softer, less noticeable street lamps. A small village in Scotland might not have any lighting at night except what is in the sky. This lamp is on the Chain Bridge in Budapest, Hungary. The lamps line the bridge on both sides and help provide the beautiful illumination the city is famous for.
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO THAT FEATURE STREET LIGHTS.
Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.
Here’s how it works:
- Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
- To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
- Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
- Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

That’s a wonderfully warm and inviting glow!
Amazing! I recently bought a frame showing street lights with a river or lake background and street lights that could be Paris? London? Budapest? Where?? I further most recently bought a watercolour of classic Venice with a Gondola in the foreground. Until I looked carefully at the frame photo of ‘Paris’ I figured out , that it is Venice. Gondola’s, exactly the same boats as the watercolour are present in both of these pictures. Ironically Coincidental
