This house is the favorite of many! Kudos to them!! Hope you enjoyed the holidays…have a Happy New Year this evening!!! Be safe!!

Happy Holidays!!


Tis the season to be jolly! 10 days til Christmas! Hope you have your shopping completed and have been enjoying the holiday season! Don’t let the Miser brothers or Grinch ruin your plans! Have fun!

Dallas, Texas – Galleria XMas Tree (Trail Light Effect)

XMas lights are always a great and easy subject for the “Trail” light effect!  As long as you have a zoom lens…set your shutter speed to a 1-3 second exposure and after clicking the shutter…zoom in or out of the lights and you can get some cool effects!  A tripod helps!!  This shot was from the big Christmas Tree located in Dallas at the Galleria Shopping mall.  You can even do this on your own tree at home…or the holiday lights outside!  Have fun during the holidays!!  Hope Santa brings you that new camera or lens you are hoping for!!

San Antonio, Texas – Hilton Hotel (HDR)

Only 3 days til Xmas!  Just wanted to add this shot from downtown San Antonio, Texas.  We visited last year and the Hilton was lit up as above.  So cool!  I give the hotel credit…never seen anything like this before!  Enjoy the holiday season!! Hope you got your shopping completed???   Another post coming soon!
