weekly photo challenge: let there be light!
Saturday, November 30: The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is Let There be Light!
Writes Ben Huberman of WordPress: We’re entering a truly light-filled season. Christmas trees, Hanukkah menorahs, and Kwanzaa kinaras are spreading their glow in homes the world over (or are just about to), while main streets and public buildings are being prepared for the winter holidays with an explosion of bright decorations.
Take a look around you. Choose one of the light sources you see, and make it the focus of your challenge entry. It can be a dramatic chandelier or a pair of dying candles; the moon, a row of glaring lightbulbs in the parking lot, or a gaudy lava lamp stored in your attic: anything goes. The light doesn’t even have to be switched on: some lamps are just as fascinating for their shape as for the photons they emit.
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO THAT FEATURES A LIGHT SOURCE.
Here are some understated lanterns in Kyoto, Japan.
And a beautiful lantern at Kargeen in Muscat, Oman.
I adored the colorful lanterns in Istanbul….
…and in Granada, Spain.
But most of all, I’ll never forget the lanterns at a lantern festival in Seoul, South Korea.
And the lights in Seoul during my son’s visit to South Korea. 🙂
Finally, here’s the last Christmas tree I decorated in my Virginia home ~ Christmas 2009. I’m looking forward to my first Christmas at home in 4 years. 🙂
