A Photo Walk In The Dark

Good morning and Happy day after Christmas!! I hope that you all had a great time with your family and friends; and that Santa was good to you.

D and I had a quiet Christmas day around here; the kids called several times, we sent pictures back and forth, and they emailed each other as well.

K only had the one day off so there was not time to make the drive home; he cooked up a delicious roast with lots of mushrooms… yummy. I’m sure his apartment smelled amazing while he opened all the gifts that found their way to him and spent a relaxing day off visiting with us and his many friends via phone/internet.

L and M sent sweet treats from Germany; some of mine even came in a music box! They cooked up a Texas style beef brisket in the smoker and it looked pretty awesome in the pictures!

After D and I had enjoyed our ham and scalloped potatoes we took a nice long photo walk. Had to test out his new Canon T3i! Plus the walk was a good thing before I got into the cheesecake! 😀

Our photo walk in the dark gave us another chance to take a few shots of the “city lights”. Here’s a few for you to enjoy and hopefully inspire you to get out there tonight and shoot a few; before all the Christmas lights come down. I think that tonight I will be testing out my new ring flash and my new speedlite!

Christmas Doesn’t Come From A Store

“Maybe Christmas,” he thought, “doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas… perhaps… means a little bit more.”
