December is always a busy month. I've had a lot going on in addition to the parties I've shared with you.
For instance, last Friday night I was up until 1:30 a.m. (Saturday morning), because I was picking my son up from LAX airport which is NOT conveniently close to our house. I'm thrilled to have him home for the next month. My parents arrive for a visit this Friday and my daughter arrives for three weeks next Monday.
The weather is supposed to cool down this week, but the last few days have involved a lot of this:
The water's a little chilly for me, but my Golden doesn't hesitate for a minute as long as the sun is shining.
Have I mentioned a million times, I love the golden hour just before sunset?
We've had some beautiful sunsets too.
I've been trying to use my camera for at least a few shots each day to strengthen my arm. Of course, the more I use my arm – the more it hurts. There's no question, though, that being a cyborg bionic, is taking my pain level down a notch or two. I'm looking forward to a few months down the road when I'll have the full benefit of my new system.
Last but not least, it took a full week, but our enormous Christmas tree is finally decorated. There was such a sense of accomplishment once the angel was placed on top.
I love the bokeh in the above photo.
Holiday lights are so beautiful to photograph regardless of what holiday you celebrate.
