Street Lamps offer the warmness and charm in late evening darkness; hidden in trees or flowers, masked by shrubs or buried by snow caps....
Let's start our tour along the streets, but this time, not in search of monuments, beauty old or modern architecture or just shops' vitrines. Because the streets have their own beauty - the lamps.
And interestingly - even in times of "Globalization" spreading around the world with its own (usually money driven) "standardization", street lamps somehow (may be out of nostalgia for the past) still keep their local style, charm and unique forms....
So enjoy this unique world of beautiful forms, shapes and light....

Don't they create the romantic ambiance?
On the left - This is the same lamp as on the 3rd photo above, yet looking so differently. This is the magic of the late summer colors :-)
On the right - I called it Unfair Competition.
Seems like this time the Street Lamp is hiding behind the tree recognizing the true superiority of the Moonlight... And frankly - it is difficult to disagree. Since the beginning of time (or may be even from earlier) the Majestic Moon is our best night companion, especially when we are far from man-made lights.

I love to watch street lamps in the early evening. Some of them are already turned on freely radiating around a "smile". But you can still admire their shapes taking advantage of the daylight time.

Night will end with sunrise, one day the spring will chase out the winter's time, the bird may change his mind and fly away - and only street lamps will patiently occupy their positions forever or may be even longer....
