From Dusk Till Dawn-Streetlights

No particular order here, 
just something that's been catching my eye lately
and wanted to share.
























One of my childhood memories...

"Mom said I could stay outside and play until the streetlights come on." 

A beautiful SONG to share. :-)

So beautiful...What a different time it was then. The street lights were our "curfew", too.

Those are great shots! And you really brought back memories! Our whole neighborhood followed that rule! It was great - I grew up across the street from an elementary school where we used to all meet up.
thanks, K

Hi, Becca! Hmmmmm! It's been too long since I've been here. (It's been a strange couple of months!) These take me back, too. Back to CA! I get that feeling - whatever it is - that lovely, excited evening feeling, from these, too.

Love, Katy

You so very rarely see kids playing outside anymore huh? Oh for the good old days that a neighbourhood of children were on the road, skipping rope, playing kickball or hide and seek. It's very sad no one does this any more.

Great photos Becca!
