Enjoyable Night at Lumeire

Elephant and the moon

Elephant and the moon

The city of Durham celebrated the Lumeire Fesival last night.  We walked to the city centre with friends and enjoyed the crisp evening of lights.  The elephant above was a projected image and stomped along at the top of the bridge.  He could be heard for several miles.


ImageOur favourite part was the projected history of Durham Cathedral on the cathedral.



Quite beautiful.




These dresses were illuminated wire forms.  They faded from one colour to another in the moonlit cathedral courtyard.




This Christmas tree was made entirely of shopping bags and then illuminated from the inside.  Cool!



More shopping bags lighting up the night.


This British phone booth has a useful job now.  It became a large goldfish aquarium.DSC03210

A lovely night.

    • Thank you for sharing them with G’ma Mac. We call her “Zoom” because she is always zooming here and there. Mostly we just call her G’ma Mac. Her daughter my Mom is “Marme” 😉
