Cool how they run the length of the street. I'm accustomed to seeing them the other way. Very quaint with the cobblestones, I'll bet they're very old.

Oh so lovely! I absolutely love this idea. If I had a nicer backyard I might do this on my patio. :)

So much christmas atmosphere in the air. Wonderful image.

All of your Christmas photos look wonderfully festive, Ciel. Happy holidays.

I enlarged this one and it is still sharp! You are good!!! It's a delightful street scene made more so by the shiny wet cobblestones...

Randy said...

What a lovely place to get you in the holiday mood.

Very interesting lighting effect. The top is festive and full of energy, while the bottom is a dark and threatening alley. It's a very effective combination.

Very beautiful, Ciel. I like how the lights are, seemingly, not much higher than the pedestrians. MB

You make me want to be there. x

Les lumières de noël sont d'autant plus belles quand elles sont discrètes et légères. Posées comme un voile au dessus des têtes elles font une voie lactée qui retient la chaleur de la vie dans cette rue.

Bonjour, Ciel!

Thanks for all your comments today! Re your question on Ocala: That is a three-wheeled Harley-Davidson motorcycle...they are quite popular here and supposedly are more stable on the road. Actually, I think they tip over more easily on a hill, though.

As to Ay! Jalisco: I have no idea if they light the lanterns over the bar area...but rather doubt it. I think they're mainly for decoration.

Hope you're having a good day!

That would be nice to take a walk under there. The snow is all gone?

I love that narrow cobbled street with its lanterns shop windows. The Christmas lights just add to the ambiance.
