Year End Photos

I took no photos when I was home in Illinois this time. I'd planned on a photo safari in Chicago, but that didn't pan out. So, just a couple of photos for you...

Gonzomantis and the Sasquatch at the Thomas Dolby/BT gig at Sonar in Baltimore, 12-20-06. Yes, my friends are big dorks. That's part of their charm!

My friend Lunesse, glass artist extraordinaire and tour goddess, dishes out the merchandise at the Dolby/BT gig. This woman has the patience of a saint. Seriously. And she makes rockin' cool beads!

New Year's Eve at the Jefferson Memorial. I was out and about with my friend Keith, in from Denver. Keith is an accomplished photographer. I, on the other hand, am not. In particular, I have no skill with nighttime photography. However, I decided I liked this fuzzy photo - the lights reminded me of swans landing.

And this fuzzy one made the "light swans" look like they were arching their necks as they floated along the Tidal Basin. (Hey, lemonade out of lemons, what can I tell you!)

This was just a wicked-looking tree near the memorial. I liked it.

My picture postcard image of the Washington Memorial. Proof positive that even the most inept photographers can get a good shot (after twenty tries!)

Nice to see friends enjoying each others company, some cracking photos Merujo - I think your last one is very good, capturing the reflection on the rippling water.....

Wow! Love the light swan photos. You should add them to your CafePress merchandise options. And your shot of the Washington Monument is "postcard" perfect!

I just like the fact that you got your shot of the monument with the aircraft warning lights illuminated. Best part of the whole thing, imho.

I was trying hard to keep my hand from shaking *and* get the lights on. Funniest thing about this? Tonight in the car, I realized I had the damn screw-on tripod sitting in the cupholder the whole flipping time. Jeez!!!
