350/365-2 Lights

"Same Lights, Different Year"

This is the third year that I have photographed this display of lights that is just around the corner from our house.  They are quite beautiful and each year I enjoy seeing them.  They have not changed in three years so I decided that I needed to do something different with this year's photos.  

Generally speaking, I like abstract looking photos.  I do like the bokeh in the foreground trees, but I'm not so sure about the trees in the background.  I have until January 1 to take more photos here and see if I can do something else that I like a little better.  For today, this will do.

349/365-2 Christmas Cards

"Warm Wishes"

The top of the china cabinet in our dining room is where cards are displayed in our house - birthday cards, Valentine's Day cards, Easter cards and Christmas cards.  Every time we sit down for a meal, we are reminded of all those you have sent thoughts and prayers.  Up until a week or so ago, this spot was occupied by sympathy cards that we received after my dad's death.  Those cards did bring us comfort, but I have to say that I am glad to now have the Christmas cards with their messages of hope and joy to look at each day.

348/365-2 In the Neighborhood - December Where I Stand

"My Corner of the World"

This is our corner.  Usually the "Where I Stand" prompt includes a literal photo of my feet.  This month's prompt focused on "in the neighborhood" and I like our street signs.  And, I didn't have much time to do this.  So, this is as good as it gets.
