This picture shows how little effort is required to make places more interesting and welcoming.
The illuminations not only made the stairs look more beautiful, interesting and easy to walk, it also changed the way they are perceived by the crowd. To my taste, no decoration could be more beautiful and arouse emotions than the standing people on the right side.
They say we cannot know how much we appreciate things until we lose them, hence try to imagine this scene without those people and lights, how empty, dull, spurn and even scary it would look.
