The new January Squares challenge, hosted as ever by Becky, the Queen of Squares,  is all about ____light. In this often dull month light of any kind is what we all need to lift our spirits as we wait impatiently for spring to begin. Click on the link to find out more.


My first hyphenated light: This is not a pleasing composition (ironic as my photo challenge this month is all about composition) but this car photo-bombed the shot I was composing as it pulled up at the traffic-lights in front of me the other day and rather than bin it as I normally would, I thought, now here’s another ___light for Becky. There are even spotlights under the guttering on that pub, but they didn’t show up enough for a photo of their own. All this and sunlight too!

brake-lights (noun) = Illuminated brake-lights indicate your car is slowing down or has stopped, giving other cars — in daylight, dim light or darkness — plenty of time to stop so they don’t crash into you.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. I had the shot composed, just waiting for the cars to clear when the lights 🚥 changed so this car stopped in front of me and I had a light bulb moment. Brake lights!!
