one word photo challenge; glow-in-the-dark

few becomes plenty

Landskrona - neighbors beauty - December

Living in a country with long DARK and cold winters, we have many ways to light up the dark. Especially around Christmas when nearly every window in Sweden has a a “welcome” light.  Sweden export about 3 million “Welcome Lights” per year and of course IKEA has  big part of that. Our biggest manufacture is “KONSTSMIDE, website in English.


I have also chosen a photo I took only a couple weeks ago – between a concert at Malmö Arena and my train home. It’s Malmö water tower, and it was truly glowing in that Sunday evening.

And of course I need to add an image from my visit to Istanbul, that I just returned home from – my seat view during our first dinner under the Galata Bridge, the Yeni Camii in its evening gown.

we can see the glow of something bright”
