I wasn’t sure what I was going to write about today, but then I saw that this week’s travel theme at Where’s My Backpack is Light and my Sunday blog post was saved! Considering my obsession with taking photos of lanterns, this theme is absolutely perfect for me!
So, without further ado, let there be light!
I’ll start with my most recent trip, simply because the uploader is still in that folder. Here’s a rather elaborate lamp post on the Gendarmen Markt in Berlin:
This light source in Luxembourg is rather fun:
There are three or four columns in front of the palace with these faces on, and when you pass them, they seem to turn and follow you. Creepy, but kind of cool!
A different source of light now… the photo below was taken in a cathedral in Brussels, Belgium:
Returning to lanterns (I swear, I could post literally hundreds of pictures of those! This one is attached to the side of a building in Heidelberg – I love all the colours!
My next lantern is in Bad Dürkheim.
I loooove this dragon light that I spotted in Ettlingen. So cool!! (Have I ever mentioned that I like dragons? No? Well, consider it mentioned…)
And finally, something a little different. The next few photos were taken at the Lichterfest (Festival of Lights) that took place in the Karlsruhe zoo/gardens in 2011. I’ve heard the Lichterfest is on every two years, so there should be another one this year…
The final one represents the pyramid that stands on Karlsruhe Market Place. Here’s the real thing:
The pyramid photo was taken by my ex-housemate when he came to visit me last year. All my pyramid photos seem to involve somebody posing in front of the pyramid, and I don’t like to post photos of people without their permission (especially considering I only post photos of myself in exceptional circumstances. I would consider that a little hypocritical…)
That’s all from me. For more photos on the theme of light or to join in yourself (you have until Thursday, after that there will be a new travel theme), go here.
This is the third travel theme I’ve taken part in. For those who missed them, my previous ones were Time and Bridges (click the words to view the posts).

That creepy face light is… creepy. 🙂 I think my favourite is the lantern in Bad Durkheim, although it was hard to choose.
It is creepy, isn’t it? Even more so when you walk by and it actual does follow you!
I think the dragon is my favourite in this post, but the Bad Dürkheim one is also a nice one. With so many pretty lanterns around it’s no wonder I’m obsessed with taking photos of them!
I really like the creepy face light!
It’s fantastic, isn’t it? Took me ages to get a photo of it that wasn’t completely blurry!
