Day 356

ISO 100, 24mm, f/11, 15.0 sec

Day 356 - Trip the lights fantastic

We got a little later start tonight than usual. Years ago (like about 20 years) a neighborhood in Keizer went all out in decorating the yards. Nearly every house participated and traffic backed up for miles to weave through the neighborhood.

We decided to walk the route tonight and were disappointed to see very few houses participating.

It didn't take me long to realize that photographing the lights was not as exciting as I had anticipated, so I dressed them up just a bit by zooming my lens in and out during the exposure.

  1. We were going to go tonight, and then Don had to spend some time pouring concrete he hadn't anticipated, so we didn't get to go. I'm sorry to hear there are fewer participants. Maybe we should look for a different neighborhood. Your photos are great!
