Each year during the Christmas season in Budapest, Hungary the city trams are each decorated with over 30,000 bright, twinkling LED lights.

“The tradition began in 2009 and has been a hit with passengers ever since. The lit up trams have become a beacon for photo ops and creative photographers have found interesting ways to capture them.”

Long exposure photos taken of the brilliantly decorated trams in motion make it appear as though they’re much more than urban transportation. They look like awesome time machines heading off to who knows where or when. All aboard!
