Not that I’ve counted or anything, but it seems like there are more lights downtown this year than in years past.  Most years I pay little attention to holiday lights, either in the city or in peoples’ yards.  But since they put up the holiday lights this year, a week or so ago, I’m almost mesmerized when I drive or walk through downtown at night.  Today’s steady rain has coated the pavement, making a mirror-like reflective surface for all the bulbs, traffic lights and neon signs.  I couldn’t resist trying out the night landscape settings on my wife’s new camera.

The message on the marquis says that it will be lit on June 25.  I presume there will be some sort of lighting ceremony.

I will try to get photos of it this evening.
