May Photo A Day : Day 20: Light

When I saw today's prompt 'Light', I could just think of this picture, or the one I had already posted in 'Need'.

You know what these are, right? These are the Diwali lights. I have no idea what they are called but they are the simple string lights which we usually put up during Diwali outside our homes. 

It will alternately light up in red, green, yellow and blue colours in a loop. They are simple and yet look very flattering. 

This picture was taken the day after Diwali in 2011.

      I click 80% of the pictures with my basic knowledge but he does a better job because he knows how to use different modes well.

  8. Aren't they pretty? You know after reading Janu's comment the thought that came to my mind was that these lighta are so pretty in themselves that sometimes they look better when they are turned off.
