Winding down...6

Posted by karla (Omaha, United States) on 5 January 2012 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

Some people have more of a fantasy world on display. This one has multiple Santa Clauses, a few snowmen, a deer, little nutcracker type soldiers on the stairs, bells, the Holy Family inside the porch. We put wreaths on the doors and call it good. Some people really like doing all this (and have the energy for it), especially for the children. It does make me smile when I drive past this house.

Thank you for visiting! Your comments and suggestions are very much appreciated.

I can so easily imagine a warm welcome there . . and another super-quality image, too.

@Nilla´s photo shoots: Hi Nilla! Actually all these images were taken with a hand-held camera. I raised the ISO for many of them. Thanks for your interest!

@franz: :)) There used to be even more like this, when the local newspaper ran an annual contest for holiday lighting displays.

@Julie L. Brown: Hi Julie, glad you like this! Thanks for the comment. Yes, viruses are worse this year. Must have drifted in with the mild weather. Also, with the grandchildren. ;) All better now.
