Weekend Snapshot: Number 16
For my pre-Christmas Weekend snapshot, I thought I'd use some Christmas shots taken not too far from where I live. A few of these photos were taken this week. However, I'm also including shots I've been taking all month for my special Christmas, in my part of town, WS edition.
First, a shot of the area in the market where I took photographs of orchids for a prior WS. During the December holiday season, the orchids are pushed back in corners and the poinsettias are front and center.Just in case someone didn't catch on to the fact that Christmas is coming up, the same market has a decorated tree and the checkout areas are also decorated.
Although the next shot isn't Christmas decorations, during the season, I always check out the bargain book racks outside bookstores for gift possibilities.
The hardware store is in on the Christmas action, not only selling tools but also selling Christmas trees, bikes, and an appealing rocker, complete with bow.
Then we have a temporary ice skating rink at North Hills Shopping center for the skaters.When the skaters are weary, they can take a break and listen to the carolers. I'll leave you with a large Christmas tree at the same shopping center as the skaters and carolers. I took the Christmas tree shot on the last day of November which is obvious to me since a few fall leaves reflected in the building were still hanging on. At this point, the trees are all bare. I probably should have taken a picture of that tree this week but frankly, the traffic is murder, and parking is worse. May your days be merry and bright. To those of you who celebrate Christmas, Christmas Gift. Whoever says that first on Christmas morning, in my family, was supposed to get an extra gift. I don't recall getting an extra gift even when I said it first, but it was still fun to greet each other with Christmas gift on Christmas morning. May the days you honor, whatever they may be, be blessed and happy, and all the other days too for that matter. You can go to Weekend Snapshot to find out how to join WS, and to find other partipants. You can also find WS participants on technoarati at Weekend Snapshot Monday is the official post date but some are early like me.
On another topic, I'll be posting a Christmas eve peace globe tomorrow (the 24th) which will be my last post until after Christmas. I know this is a busy time but if anyone is interested in posting their own Christmas eve peace globe, you can go to Mimi Writes to read about it.
