Fairy electricity


The City Daily Photo theme day for today was "Electricity" and I must say I really did not know what to post. A bunch of electric wires? Not very aesthetic... And then I crossed the Seine on the way back home, just a few minutes ago. Tthere it was! Without electricity this scenery would not exactly look the same, would it? Have a look at what the "fairy Electricity" (as we often call it in France) can do  in other parts of the world...

  1. Ah, the Seine. The reflections of the lights on the water make such a pretty scene.

  2. Its amazing what splendors we take for granted when we live among them. Sudden awareness of them makes one appreciate not only the beauty but how pampered we are.

  3. Life is full of wonder. What wonderful color and light. Thank goodness for the electric "fairies" for helping you with such a great photo! :)

    I also love how the cloud cover is lit up from beneath. When that happens here in our area, we can tell where the towns are up to 30 miles away!

    I can't even start to imagine life without the fairy Electricity.
