A Closer Look

Tonight we're going to take a second look - and in two cases a third - at some photos we've seen before. I drove past two of those Christmas houses earlier this evening, and marveled again at how much more you see in person than in these 400ish-pixel-wide photos. Let's do something about that.

These first two are cropped details from the big green tree photo from last night's Round Robin entry. I like that this first one is a line of tree shapes. Notice that the trunk of the real tree is wider than any of the fake trees, "branches", cone shapes and all.

I love this one. I lightened it a bit, but other than cropping that's pretty much all I did. This little piece of the huge lit tree looks kind of like fireworks!

Meanwhile, at another part of the same house, a snowman sits on a roof. But what are all those shapes on the front wall?

Check it out! There are quite a few lit shapes here. Too bad I still didn't get a good picture of them.

And here's that other house, with more shapes.

Best I can do tonight, folks. I have a doctor's appointment in a little over 7 hours.

Thanks for stopping by we is.

Sorry that I wasted your time with my "rule breaking," post.

I appologize for the inconvenience.

In the future I will remember to avoid the same mistakes and hope to conform to the heart of RR.

Wow, your neighborhood is very well lit for the holidays... my neighborhood isn't quite so festive looking. A few lights, less stated, but pretty nonetheless. I haven't had any luck taking pictures of lights at night time. I love the water reflection one. Bea
