My Year In Pictures: December Week 4

The days leading up to any big holiday are always a busy blur and you’d think by now I’d have found a manageable way to balance the demands of work and family and fun but I guess that dream will always be bit of a work-in-progress.   I do try to slow down for a few minutes each day though to think about what all this effort is really for so this week you get a glimpse at what I stopped to see on our way to Christmas.

There was a classic moment when I walked past a cherry red mailbox for Santa letters while listening to Christmas carols in flaky light snow and later Ryan, John and I stopped to take a picture of Santa in his sleigh. One block over I had to stop again for a picture of our favorite wine bar with its basket of pretty red berries and winter greens.  I’m always ready to photograph public art and these next two images were part of what would usually be a boring cement retaining wall.  Finally the week ends with the start of my end-of-the year tour of ornaments and Christmas Eve.

I’ll be back with a new post in a few days but if you don’t want to wait please join us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. If you’d like to learn more about any of the images but you don’t follow me on these accounts please feel free to click here for IG, here for Twitter and here for FB or select a photo from the Instagram previews in my sidebar.  You don’t need an account at either place to view my photos, everyone’s welcome.

  1. I love the glass ornaments, especially the space man. I didn’t hang my favorite glass ornaments this year because the grandsons have broken at least one a year for the last few Christmases. We will celebrate our Christmas on New Year’s Day, since that is when we can pull everyone together. I’m currently in that blur of getting ready. My husband is eating salami and cheese right now. ☺ Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
