A shower of light

Remember the hanging lights at the Promenade of Our Lady in the Ateneo de Manila High School? This is what it was like sitting underneath one of those acacia trees.

lights hanging from acacia trees
Wishing you all a peaceful and prosperous 2009!

And to those who live in countries that have not yet banned the personal use of firecrackers and fireworks (like the Philippines): please be careful tonight!

superbe,une pluie de guirlande bleue (comme sur les champs-elysées à Paris). Je te souhaite une bonne et heureuse année 2009.
haughtiness, a rain of blue garland (as on Champs-Elysées in Paris). I wish you good and happy year of 2009.

That is a gorgeous picture - I love those lights.

I'm so glad I got to check my emails before leaving (we're going to be late, but hey ...!) - I've no idea why comments were off on today's photo, I didn't set it that way! All back to normal now :)

Happy New Year!

What a wonderful picture. Very appropriate atmosphere for today. Have a great New Year's Eve Hilda! I know you just checked out my old post, but take a look at today's if you still have time, 'cause you're nearly there in manila (2009).

Wow! What a picture!

I hope you don't mind me taking the easy route by copying and pasting this comment, it is by far the easiest method of getting my message to so many CDP photobloggers.
I am not sure that I can sustain South Shields Daily Photo much longer, it is so difficult to keep finding new material on a daily basis,
and after more than two years inspiration and motivation are becoming harder to find, so I may become less daily from time to time.
I hope you can find new hope and inspiration, and that a new start in 2009 brings everything that you desire.
The CDP photoblogging community has grown massively over the past year and I'd like to thank those who have visited South Shields Daily Photo, especially those who have been kind enough to leave a comment or two.
Best wishes for 2008
