Illuminations No. 5 – Merry Christmas


Merry Christmas to everyone, hope you all have a safe and happy holiday weekend.

Illuminations No. 1


Our local botanical garden, “Botanica” has a large holiday light display called “Illuminations”.   I visited last weekend, not knowing what to expect or what/how to proceed with photographing it…so I did what most of us probably have to do now and then…made it up as we went along.    I did get a lot of practice maneuvering a tripod in a crowd, if nothing else.   The plan is to post a few images from that between now and Christmas.   I may have to go back, I think we missed quite a bit of the show, it is spread over quite a large area.

Gizmo Slash Feline



I admit it.  There’s no denying it.  I am hurting for new images right now.   I have gone back into the hard drive and found an old one to play around with.   I’m pretty sure I have never presented an image of Gizmo the wonder cat on this blog.  He usually gets his mail from the vet addressed to Gizmo/Feline, thus the title of the post.   I blame, umm… I mean I was inspired to do this by Ken Bello.   Gizmo hasn’t made any major motion pictures Ken, but he has other talents.  Like eating.  And sleeping.
