Yes I took this in 2014 but it looks the same this year and that is OK.
Just a different angle. The Union Depot is behind me and the tree is in front of me. Another shot from last weeks tree lighting.
At 4th and Sibley in downtown St. Paul on the steps of the Union Depot.
I like to photograph the holiday lights when there is some light in the sky. Daylight gives it all context and we can see the beautiful urban setting that Rice Park is in the center of the the gorgeous trees. However . . am not a fan of the brightly colored trash cans and all the signs but they are also a part of city life.
I miss riding my bike in the winter. I never though of using it as a holiday decoration. I usually just leave it in the shed until the snow melts.
Merry Christmas. I’ll be back next week with some more photos.
