Lights on - Thematic Photography

Don't you just hate those people who show you their holiday snaps? Nevertheless I'll have to risk it and switch the lights on.

Hotel lounge in Lanzarote
I don't know what the hotel's name is now but it used to be the Sheraton at Costa Tequise.

The lounge pool
The pool in the lounge is not for swimming, but is close enough to the bars so that you can drown your sorrows if you are so inclined. However if you fancied dancing outside the nearest we got was not in the Canaries but off Montenegro.

Group on stage at Sveti Stefan
Sveti Stefan is a five star hotel on what was once a small island but is now joined to the mainland by a small isthmus.

Sveti Stefan (in the daylight)
Nearer home someone has either put out the lights or never switched them on.

Lamps at Stockton-on-Tees
At least the gull found somewhere to (a)light without burning its feet.

For more enlightenment you need to switch over to Carmi's Written Inc. 188-

Well we all like to see holiday snaps with ourselves in them right? But I do enjoy seeing places, and buildings, dogs, water, birds, name it you have most of my likes and desires right here. I hope to make Sepia Saturday this week, missed last too busy of a week, and I kind of miss the old style of Alan's themes. I feel like, should I post my favorite theme too? But then it's like hey just post whatever you want right! Enjoy your week, I have lunch to eat!

I can't help with the hotel name either Bob; it could be any one of them, but nice lights anyway. I'm in Madrid so not taking part this week.

That's a neat place.

And home to a Spassky-Fischer match.

I really like holiday snaps on the net. I don't go ooh and aaaah on every photo but I do like them.

Love the seagull on the lamps. And a good picture of the band playing.
