Last year at this time, my husband and I took a

Christmas shopping trip to Chicago.  Even though I

have done a lot of traveling, I have never traveled during

the Christmas season, and have always wanted to see

Chicago or NY for the decorations.  Here are a few

I took of the lights along Michigan Avenue, and

ice skating at Millennium Park.  A must do!

Iron and Brick

This photo follows my  posts from other cities showing my obsession with

street lamps.  This was taken in New York’s Financial District.  There is certainly

nothing fancy about this particular light, but I like how the background contains

other favorites of mine: architecture and fire escapes.

Moon over Champs Elysees

available on etsy.com

We were lucky to be in Paris on a clear night with the full moon.  We climbed the winding staircase

that makes me feel like I’m going to die after I get to the top, and had this spectacular view.

My husband, Jim, took this photo.  And without a tripod!  It’s tricky getting good shots at night

without it.  But I believe they had a sign that forbade the use of tripods.  I really love this photo,

not only like this, but Jim actually made a triptych out of it, and put the 3 panels between glass.

It looks awesome against the red wall of our dining room.  This photo is available at etsy.com if you

think its awesome too!

Swishy pictures!

My favorite kind of photography is night photography.  I love getting the car headlight trails in front of a nice subject.  I call these “swishy pictures” since the car lights are all blurry and swishy.  Here are a couple of my favorite:  the roundabout at the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, and Big Ben with traffic on the Westminster Bridge.  When I was preparing my tripod and camera for the London pic, some drunk kids came by, and I got a perfectly framed shot of someone mooning me!  I chose not to capture that image 🙂  You can also see these photos on etsy.com.
