Snowmen….

A belated Xmas post.
No one seemed to be in the mood this year…including the snowmen.

Xmas Inflatables part 2

If last year was the year of the basic snow man this year was the year of variety. I saw everything from Angry Bird to Tigger to a Xmas Turkey – who knew?

Xmas Inflatables

This was a difficult year for shooting Xmas decorations. There seemed to be fewer yard displays than in past years. I don’t know if it was due to the snow storm disrupting peoples plans or a lack of Christmas cheer. Either way I only got three good shooting days in and one was Xmas day. So the haul is small this year but I am pleased with some. I’ve tried to edit ruthlessly and don’t worry I won’t inflict too many on you in any one post.

Xmas….Snow…..and Dogs

I love where I live. This is Main st. Rosendale. I love my town.

Except that this is the weather today.

This is what it should be….

The dogs at least know how to have a good time (I am sulking)

Xmas……Chairs and Inflatables

This is the first of my Xmas posts. I really like this first shot because it combines some of my favorite things – empty chairs, tacky Xmas decorations and the color orange. I was also irrationally irritated that I couldn’t pivot the building 180 degrees to give it a south western exposure.

I might have to do a whole series of motel chairs/doors……it’s probably been done, but….

And now the inflatables begin…..

I hope this will be just the beginning of my Xmas posts, but the weather is not cooperating…..ice, snow, wheelchairs…..really very unpleasant. However the sun is out, maybe there will be melting.
