Theme Day: The Sun as a Street Light

Today's worldwide Daily Photo theme is street lights.  I have taken liberties with the theme because the street lights in Tamarindo are not photogenic.  Tamarindo is a small resort town, but it does not have a lot of urban infrastructure.  In fact, there are only a few paved streets.

The focal point of Tamarindo is the beach.  The sun each evening drops into the Pacific like a huge street light, so I am using this photo for the street light theme.

When I think of street lights, I think of my late father talking about how when he was a young child his father had a rule that he had to be in before the street lights came on.  And my father also remembered the beating he received the one time he disregarded the rule.

This week we are showing photos from Cabra Castle, a castle-hotel northwest of Dublin Ireland, on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

Here is a link to the City Daily Photo website that displays the Theme Day posts.

Yours is the most imaginative of theme posts I've seen already today! Great photo, Dave, of natural light!

Perfect Dave!

An absolutely superb photo in every way. Frame it and hang it! I'll bet it would sell big time in your local tourist shops!

Judy said...

This is an awesome shot, Dave. I can see this framed and hanging on your office wall! A unique take on the theme.

If we were all in bed by the time the streetlamps came on, we'd only need the sun!!! Great shot and great story!!

Dave, this is quite a lamp image. A sailboat and moon at sunset. Wow!

Jack said...

Errrr, that was supposed to be "sun."

Bob Crowe said...

Excellent, creative interpretation. The sun and moon are Tamarindo's best street lights.

Goodness me how did I miss this one Dave.. What a brilliant take on the theme and a really beautiful image. I thought about showing the lighthouse, you know..sea lanes instead of streets..but changed at the last moment :)
