Streets of San Francisco

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.

January Squares | Day Twenty-Seven

Seeing Red

the National Museum of Australia, Canberra

This photo was taken of my son and eldest granddaughter just over five years ago when I visited her home town of Canberra. We spent the day visiting several of the capital city’s many free museums and galleries of which this was a favourite of mine. I found it particularly amusing that Miki was wearing a T-shirt with the logo “Offspring” on it. And had red hair at the time!

(This could also be a bonus square for Becky – Slatted-light or filtered-light be OK?)
