Photo of the Week 80
Merry Christmas, readers! I’ve had a lovely holiday here in Albany spending time with family and friends. Now that the wrapping paper is
on the floor neatly folded for reuse next year and the last of the peppermint ice cream has been demolished polished, it’s time to share a few Photos of the Week.
I’ll have an extended post coming up about my holiday traditions and spending Christmas and Thanksgiving at home, but for now a few teasers…
One of my favorite things about Christmas is the grown-up dinner party I’ve been throwing for my friends since senior year of high school. It’s the one time of the year I actually enjoy cooking.
Lights in the Park is a Capital Region Christmas tradition. This year, we waited in line for over an hour to see…. lights in a park! But the laughs in the car were worth it.
I can’t believe that this was the first year that I ever went ice skating at Empire State Plaza! Watching the sunset from the ice in the middle of this iconic Albany landmark was the start of a perfect new holiday tradition.
I love this photo that juxtaposes a Christmas poinsettia with a Buddha sculpture. Why? Because as you read this, I’m on my way back to Southeast Asia!
Merry Christmas and happy holidays! Which photo do you think should be Photo of the Week?
I really love D, because it is so timely, as you said.
I’m glad you had a happy Christmas home with your family!
Thank you so much Jen, I always appreciate your comments!
It’s a tie between B and D. Loved them all!
See! You missed out on a great Lights in the Park 🙂
B this week, Alex! Great composition! Have a great trip, can’t wait to see what you’ll show us!
Thanks Chris! It’s great to be back.
I vote for the chocolate cake!
I have to send you the recipe… it’s the one and only chocolate cake/brownie recipe in the world that I like!
I like A, it looks like you guys had a great time! Speaking of great time, have a blast in Asia- and enjoy the warm weather for me 🙂
Believe me, I will enjoy the warm weather enough for every single reader of this blog 🙂
Photo B (You & car mirror). None of the others is even close.
Steve, I hope you got to experience the magic that is Lights in the Park! If not, it’s there till Jan 4th 🙂
Photo C! I love the shadows. Have a good flight and hope your jetlag isn’t too bad! Looking forward to next week’s photo.
Considering I’m responding to comments at 7am and have been awake for 5 hours… it’s pretty bad 🙂
Great photos! My favorite is B–looks like fun! 🙂
Thanks Jenna! I think I started a new holiday tradition 🙂
I love the photo of you in the car mirror.
Thank you! It’s one of my favorites as well.
