Working into the night at Panera

I am now up to date on my photos. This is from last night where I sat with my back to the warm fire while working, working, working on Brave Writer. (I did manage to squeeze a little Scrabulous in with she who will remain nameless. You know who you are. [g])

Photo comes from photobooth on the MacBookPro, hence the grainy quality.

Little red barn

Our neighbors have this wonderful birding set-up in their backyard. I love the Christmasy red and green, and the attentive placement of bird bath and feeders.

I've gotten a lot of mileage out of my African violet collection this year in pictures.

The llama's friends. More photos from the llama and horse farm can be seen here. It was a fun day of photography.

Lighting the tree

I preferred these trees against the night sky to the big Christmas one.

It was 35 degrees downtown on Friday night after Thanksgiving, the traditional night that Cincinnati lights their big tree and Santa descends from the sky to the cheers of small children. We all waited over an hour for the anticipated lighting while getting frostbite. There were thousands shivering while inane speeches were offered by Banks, Companies and Government. A band played and local ice skaters skated (we could only see them on the big screen as it was too crowded).

The anti-climactic moment finally came once the crowd chanted "Light that tree!" The result: a not very well lit huge tree. Don't even want to post a photo of it. The whole experience: small town Cincinnati. :) We had to laugh (and then head to a restaurant to eat hot food and drink hot coffee).

I thought it amazing that Noah and Caitrin were still smiling about 45 minutes into the experience. :D

Petting the horse

I'm in a habit now of posting favorite shots from one day to cover a couple of 365 days rather than daily photos. It's how I'm making it to the end so I press on.

I loved how this one turned out in the almost dark of Friday night.
