Blue Lights of Brussels

Blue Lights BrusselsBlue Lights on the Grand Place/Grote Markt, Brussels, Belgium.

Blue Lights BrusselsThis past holiday season, the Christmas “tree” on the Grand Place (aka Grote Markt) in Brussels garnered a lot of attention, including my own. And for good reason. But I was also drawn to the noncontroversial effect of the blue lights in front of the Town Hall combined with the rain-dampened ground.

    Those are interesting photos 🙂 Blue lights hold a different memory for me – dating back to my college days. Our campus had a series of blue lights, spaced just far enough apart you could see the next one in the distance if you stood at one light, with a telephone box on each pole. If you were walking around campus and felt uncomfortable (ie some is following you, etc), you could pick up the blue light phone and campus police would escort you back to your destination.

    • I had a similar experience with blue light phones at university in the States. I always felt reassured to know that they were there and am happy to say that I never felt the need to use one. Thanks for your comment!

  2. Wow those blue lights are beautiful 😀
