Weekly Photo Challenge: Twinkle, Twinkle (In New York, Detroit and Chicago)

At the darkest time of the year, we are all drawn to light.  In cities all over the world, colored holiday lights brighten the darkest of winter nights and remind us that soon the earth will return to days of light and warmth.  For this week’s photo challenge, I’ve collected photos from 3 cities–New York, Chicago, and Detroit.  I’m posting a bit late because of a big deadline at work, but I hope you can still enjoy this bit of light I’m sending to all my Word Press friends around the globe, along with my wishes for wonderful holidays and a joy-filled new year.

I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars.

  1. I am fond of the photos where families go to malls and other public places to take pictures with the massive ornamentation behind them. There is something so endearing and charming about the festivities of the season. I just wish January, February, and March had something to help us get through the dark days as well.

  2. Hi Colline. They are spectacular. I didn’t have a digitized copy of my photos from a few years ago, so I made a point of going back a few weeks ago and taking a few shots! Thanks so much for stopping by. I’ll drop by your site too. –Patti
