ABC Wednesday: Lamps

Today's post for ABC Wednesday is L for "Lamps".

These decorative lamps are situated on the steps of Ashton's Town Hall. I caught them just as dusk was setting in. The lamps had come on but, with a clear blue sky overhead, there was still quite a lot of daylight, giving a slight glow to the Market Hall in the background.

In the daytime the space in front of the Town Hall is bustling with shoppers moving between the Market Hall and the Outside Market. However, this being the evening, the area was spookily deserted.
