The Watcher


The start of the holiday season.

This one.

This is the picture I mentioned in yesterday’s Storyteller.

The Christmas wish of “peace y’all” has been around for as long as I can remember. Except for some slight rewiring, the lights never change. This picture is probably four or five years old. But, I could wander down to Royal Street today and make the same one.

I dressed this version up in some new bobbles from OnOne. It’s warmer. It has little globe-like things around, which are OnOne’s version of in-computer created bokeh. I’ve opened the shadows some. But, that’s about it.

As I wrote yesterday, I was thinking that I might not even try to photograph this decoration again. Then the light bulb went off. I found an idea. I’lll either show it to you if it works. Or, tell you about it if it doesn’t.

I’d like one thing from all of you who are photographers. I’d love to see where you live dressed up in its Christmas or holiday best. Whaddya think?

    Great idea to share local “dressed-up for the holidays” photos. I couldn’t figure out how to paste one here, so I did a post: https://glovergardens.com/2019/12/07/mr-sandman-ready-for-christmas/ . Also – I love the picture and the fact that it is new art atop an old photo. The “globe-like things” really give it a festive nostalgia.

      Thank you. I just have to figure out how to renew the pictures without making the same pictures. I have an idea for “Peace Y’all.” It’s gonna be tight with our sked.
