The Ornament

I went to the Woodstock Christmas Jubilee Parade of Lights the other evening.  The temperature dropped after dark and we did not stay for the tree lighting.  However, I got a few shots around town before dark and some of the parade.

It snowed a little bit on Friday and continued into Saturday.  I could not resist going out and taking a few shots in the snow Friday before it got too dark.  This was with about 3 – 4 inches of snow.  We got another 3 – 4 after I took this photo.  The snow was so good, that we made a 7 foot snowman.  However, the temperature was right at 32 degrees and the snow was very wet and heavy, and the snowman fell down during the night.

The Anchor Monument

Walking around Savannah at night is one of my favorite things to do.  Not only is it full of excitement (not getting mugged), but the sights are pretty cool.  This is the Anchor Monument along River Street.  It is a tribute to all the Sailors that have lost their lives.

The Small Tree

When I was little, I loved Bonsai Trees.  I think that may have been from the Karate Kid, but then maybe not.  Anyways, This is the several hundred year old Pond Cyprus that is the central piece of the Bonsai Garden at the Smith Gilbert Gardens in Kennesaw Georgia.  While this one was the oldest, and made me feel young, I was impressed with the age of the other Bonsai.

Garden Lights Path

I am so excited, it is the start of Christmas Lights season.  No, this is not from this year.  However, I can’t wait to make some memories of lights this year.  This is from the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, Garden Lights display a couple years ago.  I think my favorite from the gardens that time was the couple Admiring the Tree.

Under the Bridge

I found this interesting shot where the Chattahoochee River flows under Main Street in downtown Helen, Georgia.  I took this while walking around the day after hiking to Upper Desoto Falls.

This was a short, not too hard hike.  I was able to make it to Upper Desoto Falls and Lower Desoto Falls.  This was after running by Helton Creek Falls.

Roman Fountain

I had a couple hours to burn in downtown Rome Georgia.  I ran across this fountain in the side of one of the buildings.  The lights were just right to get a good view of the relief carved into the wall behind the fountain.

The Infantryman

I spent a couple hours walking through the National Infantry Museum at Fort Benning.  It is a sobering experience walking through the hall of the museum and seeing the history of infantry in the United States.  This shot is of the Infantryman statue that sits under the rotunda at the entrance to the museum.
