These were taken from my back deck around Thanksgiving.
My son, who recently returned home from several months in Spain, was attempting to show me how to adjust the camera settings to take pictures at night. He takes amazingly good pictures and is pretty much self-taught like his mother.
Unlike his mother, however, he actually knows how to use settings other than Auto, something I've struggled with for years.
Once again, I've neglected this blog and haven't been out to take any pictures even though there have been many great photo opportunities, like the Mathews Christmas parade this past Saturday. And even though we had the first decent snowfall of the season yesterday. (Nothing stuck in my yard but it was nice watching it come down all day.)
I've been in a physical and mental funk, so to speak, and still haven't gotten back into the swing of things here on the blog. I suppose I can once again make it a resolution for 2019--along with exercising more, eating better, all the stuff I know I'm supposed to be doing.
On the plus side, my monster of a Christmas tree is up. It's over 20 years old and still fighting me every step of the way, but for the time being I claim victory in our ongoing feud.
Click here and here and here for pictures and stories from past Christmases.
I hope to get out and take some pictures soon.
