WP Photo Challenge: Nighttime

Nighttime in St. Louis last November sparkled with Christmas lights.  We were on the snow route, but someone forgot the snow.

They didn’t forget the cold.  Cheryl and I both had our reindeer noses on, but no sleigh!  🙂

Breathtaking sights that phenomenal night walking around in the bitter, clear cold.

Without my friends my magnificent night would have bubbled away and escaped into a book.  I’m so glad I have friends who wouldn’t let me miss the magic.

About a week after I left St. Louis, Vince and I flew to Honolulu.  What a difference!  It is almost a challenge to find nighttime in Honolulu.  The island Los Angeles never sleeps.  We found this statuesque young man on the street corner, painted in silver, shimmering in the city lights, and not moving a muscle…then he did.

NCSS holds conferences all over the United States.  In 2011 we went to Washington DC.  These statues at the Korean Memorial stayed eerily still that night during the nighttime tour.  I can’t guarantee what happened after the tour ended.

Nighttime city tours are the best.  The Marine Corps War Memorial signified the conclusion of the campaign in Pacific.

You never know who you will meet.

Important people you don’t expect to see.

Of course, nothing is nicer than nighttime at home….. once in a blue moon!  🙂

I apologise for the quality of my photos, I hope the nighttime story is still enjoyable.  Sleep tight!  🙂

        1. I’m always making typos and worse. I used the word here for hear the other day in a FB post. My husband caught it, but not soon enough! It’s like, “Who wrote that anyway? I don’t know that already?” Who knows. 🙂 Have you written a book? You are a great writer. 🙂

          1. Thank you for such a nice compliment! I’m working on several at once, for adults and kids. I have ADD and find it difficult to finish things, although I’m great at starting too many. But my new goal for the year is to have an agent for my kids’ picture books. Or get at least one of them accepted by a publishing house.

          2. You and me too! I have several children’s book, and a romance I’m still working on. However, the Woodlake one takes precedence since it is a contract. It helps to focus when you have deadlines. 😀
