Well we have reached the penultimate day of the January Squares challenge, hosted as ever by Becky, the Queen of Squares, which is all about ____light. That’s words ending in light. So if you want to join in best be quick!
Headlights and Brake-lights
Another photo from the streets of San Francisco. This time I stepped out into the middle of the road to take this shot on California Street (don’t worry I waited until the traffic had stopped at the lights down below) aiming for an iconic cable car image, but we have headlights, brake-lights, streetlights and traffic-lights too.
Headlight (noun) = Headlamps are also often called headlights, but in the most precise usage, headlamp is the term for the device itself and headlight is the term for the beam of light produced and distributed by the device.
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.

After living in Norfolk for so long, those steep streets in SF look like mountains to me! 🙂
Best wishes, Pete.
They feel like that when you walk up and down them!
after a while though you don’t notice them . . . there again he last time I was there i had just arrived from New Zealand where I had been walking lots!
Wonderful Jude – I do love this city
You could take me here instead of Vancouver? 🙂 🙂 Bought a beautiful Nandina Domestica this afternoon. Red/green foliage and heaps of fabulous red berries. Needed something because my gifted poinsettia tree lost all its leaves and hasn’t rallied. 😦
Nandina are lovely shrubs, I have thought about buying one myself.
You have been to SF haven’t you?
Nope 😦 Only San Diego on that coast.
Oh, that’s a shame. Won’t hubby take you?
Nope 😦 😦
We’ll have to make a plan 🤔
Great shot, Jude. Of course you had to have the cable car. 😃
A shame there was so much other traffic in the way though!
I’m pleased you weren’t dodging the traffic to get this great shot Jude.
I’d have preferred there to have been no traffic at all except for the cable car, but needs must!
I can’t imagine that would ever happen.
There’s no place like San Francisco, I am very happy to blessed the way I am.
