Zounds! Such lights are quite appropriate for a rue named Royale! These are no doubt some of the most elegant Christmas lights I've seen on a public street.

It looks like you took this picture on a damp night...perhaps a little snow was falling?

Gunn said...

Very pretty!

Regina K said...

This is very nice.

I'll bet this looks wonderful in person, with the alternating gold and blue lights. It is hard taking good pictures of effects like this . . . you succeeded nicely. We saw some wonderful lighted streets in Amsterdam and I took repeated pictures, but none conveyed how great they looked in person.

This St. Louis doesn't have anything that pretty. It looks like one of those modern, elegant suspension bridges with a single tower in the middle.

Randy said...

I wish they did something like that here. They are so beautiful.

One of the prettiest street scenes that I have seen anywhere...I wish that there were a video of it somewhere too.

Dazzling and beautifully presented!

SRQ said...

Lovely. I really like how the glow of streetlights create a halo effect too.

JM said...

The car lights add so much to the top shot!

VP said...

Wonderful! Again no match against our lousy lights, which I wisely refuse to post!

Sharon said...

Those are really beautiful street decorations!

EG Wow said...

Oh my goodness! I feel like I should dress up to look at these fine decorations. Please don't notice that I am wearing jeans. :)

Ann said...

The blue lights are very attractive.
