Every Tuesday, we share photographs from our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.

Swarovski’s Museum – Crystal Dome (Part 2 of 4)

Last week, I shared a few sampler photos of what’s inside the Swarovski’s Museum. This time around, I am taking you deeper into the heart of the museum – for you to gasp at the lights and brilliance.

There were a billion lights out there on the horizon and I knew that all of them put together weren’t enough to light the darkness in the hearts of some men. 
― Michael Connelly, The Scarecrow

Is that all we have left? Is that all we are? Lights on a map that are slowly dying, hanging on for nothing?
― Carrie Ryan, The Dead-Tossed Waves

The city was dark except for the building lights that seemed to appear like sores – like bandaids had been ripped off to expose the city’s skin.
― Markus Zusak, Underdog
Well, maybe it started that way. As a dream, but doesn’t everything. Those buildings. These lights. This whole city. Somebody had to dream about it first. And maybe that is what I did. I dreamed about coming here, but then I did it. 
― Roald Dahl, James and the Giant Peach
People won’t admit it, they’re too busy grabbing to see that the lights have fused. They can’t see the darkness and the spider-face beyond and the great web of it all. That there’s always this if you scratch at the surface of happiness and goodness.
The black and the black and the black.
― John Fowles, The Collector

The whole of Paris was lit up. The tiny dancing flames had bespangled the sea of darkness from end to end of the horizon, and now, like millions of stars, they burned with a steady light in the serene summer night. There was no breath of wind to make them flicker as they hung there in space. They made the unseen city seem as vast as a firmament, reaching out into infinity. 
― Émile Zola, Une Page d’amour

There are dark shadows on earth, but the lights are always brighter.
― Charles Dickens
