2016/12 Christmas lights in Périgueux


In december 2016 I went with a group of friends to Périgueux for an evening "christmas lighting".

Périgueux's christmas lighting was something of a disappointment - very little real christmas lighting and the street lighting, using sodium lamps, was a strong yellow, almost orange, which gave a rather unattractive tint to all the photos.  However, we did succeed in taking some well composed shots, which, once converted to b/w, turned out quite well.

Towards the end of the evening we headed for the outdoor ice skating rink where we were invited to join a group of people sharing a glass or two beside one of the market stalls - a really warm welcome which quite transformed the outing.
