one of the most beautiful towns on the French Riviera
Rue Longue in the Old Town where the Christmas decorations have been hung.
The Old Town
What a beautiful picture of a lantern with Christmas lights. Almost impossible for me to imagine with such a beautiful blue sky and contrast adjustments. With us the sky is very gray and it was freezing last night, even a degree or two.I wish you a very happy dayDear greetings, Helena
That's beautiful, Christmas decorations under South colors !Now you can't avoid, Jilly, showing them us by night !!!
Christmas is sneaking up on me ...again. I will be in India for Christmas, where it will not seem so Christmasy! This is a beautiful photo...and as one commenter said, let's see them at night!
Ah, those are tiny *lights*. Before enlarging I thought the decorations were recycled from the crown of thorns. I hope Jerusalem streets get some lights strung for Hanuka. Decorations are cheerful during winter.
ca va vient vite, deja les décorations de Noël. elles sont belles
They are looking interesting. I would like to see them by the night too.
One month too early if you ask me.
Steffe, I agree. I think in fact it takes a long time to get the decorations up all over the town - I noticed more going up today - so I suppose they have to start early. None are yet lit at night and yes, everyone who asked, I will take night shots when they are finally lit.
Beautiful Christmas decorations...Maybe a bit too early.Waiting to see them alight in the evening.Costas
The idea of Christmas in the South of France right now sounds wonderful. Can't wait to see night images.
Thanks again for the memories, Jilly. I am glad they replaced the Santa Claus decorations they used to hang on the Rue Longue. They made quite a contrast to the Halal grocer's sign you can see on the left if you enlarge the smaller photo. We lived in the orange building right across the street from the sign - still no front door. But who needs one! I loved living on the Rue Longue, and Menton goes all out for Christmas. It truly becomes a wonderland. It's a great time to visit.
Great camera angle -- the lights look surreal in shape and as an object against the beautiful street lantern and colorful narrow alley.joanny
Well, if you ask me - the decoration looks a little bit strange. Not like Christmas at all. I would prefer stars or snowflakes...Barbara from Germany
