Are These Spaceships?

Another drive by shot, taken as the 11th day of April 2012 was approaching its final moments. We were on the entry road to Paris. Sky was overcast with dark clouds and from nowhere these structures appeared in my frame. So, what are these?

Yes, these are lamp posts.

    There was a time I mistook weather baloons for UFOs 😉

  37. There are similar lamp posts in Chennai close to a particular fly over and one of the days its had been lowered for maintenance or repairs and my daughter was screaming when she was four that the UFO had landed and there were aliens about to jump out, she was in love with ET and Monster inc at that time.
