    Wonderful images, Teresa! I’m still running to catch up with everyone over on the new blog. We have a White Night celebration here in Loule but I’ve not yet managed to go. Maybe next summer!

    1. Teresa says:

      Oh do you have a new blog? What is the link may I ask?

      1. restlessjo says:

        Here I am!
        It operates slightly differently than RJo and normally you need to click on ‘blog’ from the Home page.

        1. Teresa says:

          Will visit you later. Thanks for the link 👍🏼

          1. restlessjo says:

            No worries! Any old time. We have company arriving today so I’m just cleaning 😂💕

          2. Teresa says:

            Yeah that can wait. Have a good day!

    I like all of these, and they illustrate the van Gogh quote beautifully. I remember of course, his The starry Night painting and others but the first image that comes to mind thinking of him are his daylight scenes of Provence and particularly, the sunflowers.

  3. Teresa says:

    I can see how you may think that! And I so love lights in the darkness. Thanks for the comment ❤️

  4. Beautiful captures.
    Love the bridge

    1. Teresa says:

      Thanks a lot 👍🏼

  5. Amy says:

    What a fabulous gallery of lights, Teresa! So wonderful to see the lights from different places.

    1. Teresa says:

      Thanks Amy, some of them I have forgotten already. Happy for the likes.

  6. Tina Schell says:

    So very clever Teresa! Several of your images are scenes I’d have walked right by but are so perfect! The candles are wonderful and I really loved the car park and even the WC sign. Terrific eye for interesting images this week!

    1. Teresa says:

      Glad that you liked them Tina. Sometimes you don’t notice things while you are at the moment but then when you look back at your photo gallery … it just pops out.

  7. Wonderful set. The glowing tubes of colour are really something!

    1. Teresa says:

      It even emits a sound when you pass under them like a xylophone….it is a cool installation 👍🏼

      Thanks Wi ❤️

    A varied and interesting gallery, Teresa! I must say my favourite turned out to be the car park – I normally hate car parkks, but this was a positive view of one!

    1. Teresa says:

      It certainly is an interesting structure and different kind of lighting. Thanks 🙏🏻
