Street lamps by the canal of Nîmes

streetlampsThe August theme at City Daily Photo is street lamps. So, here’s a classy one, taken at the Quai de la Fontaine in Nîmes. The canal is lined by plane trees, and between every two trees there is a pair of classical French street lamps, or lampadaires.

Sure there are modern ones in the city, but my eye likes this one!

The CDP linky seems not working yet, so to see the streetlamps around the world, it’s better to click the latest category.

  1. That classic shape will never, I hope, be overtaken by more modern and minimalist designs!
