Becky’s new Square Photo Challenge for January is all about Lights and more specifically about words that end in light/s, so here is my first entry for this subject. These images were captured at a Mount Prospect Bluesmobile Cruise Night. I even managed to get a bit of a selfie in there.
The subject for Nancy Merrill’s Photo A Week Challenge is Lit From Within and, although I hadn’t intended to participate this week, the opportunity to capture some appropriate pictures presented itself quite by chance and so here is my take on the challenge. For the past three weeks I’ve been spending much of the time at the hospital visiting my 93-year-old mother-in-law. Sadly she has reached the stage where nothing more can be done for her and has been moved to more comfortable surroundings in hospice there. The only bright spot in these rather gloomy days has been the sight of the Christmas Village that has been set up in the lobby of the hospital. Apparently, the man who owns all these lovely ornaments brings them in every Christmas for everyone to enjoy. Thank you, whoever you are! You have helped to lighten our load.

Lights! Camera! Action! This week, Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge puts lights in the spotlight. I hadn’t realized how many pictures of lights I had until I went through the photo files looking for suitable images. Here are just a few.
