Outdoor Christmas holiday lights turned on at twilight. Palatine Illinois. December 2013., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photograph one evening last week at the end of my shift, in northwest suburban Palatine Illinois.
Night was falling when I was dropping off my last passenger on Kimball Avenue, and this decorated house just down the street with the lights on, the streetlamp lit, and the night time sky approaching, was too good of a photo opportunity to pass up during this Christmas holiday season.
Luckilly, I had brought my camera with me to work that day, cold as it was outside.
