Had a bit of a camera clear out…
In an event to continue the legacy of Hull’s City of Culture status, Urban Legends: Northern Lights (back in December 2018) had various illuminated installations around the city centre. Some told tales that brought giant, fantastical creatures to life on the walls of our museums. Others carpeted pedestrian areas in an ever-changing kaleidoscope of asymmetric patterns, or lit our landmarks in an array of bright colours.
Then there were a few that were just plain…odd. Like the talking mermaid and the ice queen propped up in shop windows and looking like bad fairground freak-show attractions. But you can’t win them all! Fortunately, I was too short to get close enough to them, so you’re saved from the disturbing images!
Overall, it was a nice start to the Christmas festivities in town and the interactive nature was more interesting than your usual string of fairy lights. Enjoy!

We recently had something similar: lights on the outside of the Victorian type Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park, and then they had the inside with lights too. It is hard to explain. You inspired me to post a photo of what I am talking about. They called it Night Bloom.
