Glow, “glimmer, glimmer.”


Still one of my favourite night shots. Taken on a quite street in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

When I first saw this word prompt for the photo challenge, I was transported back about 60 years to when my mother would play the tune, Glow-worm. First written for a German operetta in the early 20th century, translated to English by Lilla Cayley Robinson, and finally made popular by the Mills Brothers on an arrangement by Johnny Mercer in 1952.

Unable to find any glow worms, not even a fire fly, the best I could come up with follows.




Moon glow in Tofino, British Columbia. Cheers.

    Love the glow in these photos, the street scene is inviting as is the moon glow in the water. Hard to pick a favourite. You are a real “painter of light”

      Thank you. You had me for a bit there, then the lights came on; the Italian painter. Cheers.
