Weekly Photo Challenge: Changing Seasons


Here in San Francisco, we don’t have seasons per se; the weather’s pretty temperate. But when the red and green lights come up on City Hall, and the tree is lit in Civic Center Plaza, then we know it’s Christmas season once again!

  1. Wow, that’s pretty cool.

    Same with Singapore! Except the decorations come up immediately after Halloween.

    • Hey there, Drew. Here in SF, the city at least waits until the weekend before Thanksgiving (Nov. 24) to do up the big city displays like this one at City Hall, but this year the retailers were fully decorated the week before Halloween. I think I saw my first Christmas themed TV commercial in late October. Every year it gets earlier.

    Wonderful with the red and green … fantastic photo … this is Christmas for me – the cities Christmas lights. .

  6. Oh how I love EVERYTHING the Holiday season entails, and that’s quite a fancy way of decorating your City Hall! From the lights to the festivities to the holidays! It’s absolutely my favorite time of the year, especially here in NYC!

    • Hello Antoinette … and happy holidays to you! Absolutely agreed. I love EVERYTHING about Christmas. I love how vibrant, colorful and alive cities become at Christmas. I visited NYC in December about five years ago, and whereas we here in SF do it up nicely, no one does Christmas like New York!

    🙂 Beautiful light scheme 🙂 I would trade places with you in a second just to get some moderate temperatures :). Nicely taken, Stephen!
