Only 24 more days...

...and you know the rest.

Christmas lights are beginning to appear Where The Ghetto Meets The Sea. This display probably gives its owner an electricity bill higher than my rent...



And even the International Order of Red Men's lodge got some lights this year...



I wrote a letter to Santa. I'm betting the old commie bastard's gonna ignore me again this year. I didn't ask for much. At least it wasn't exactly large, and would fit nicely in his sleigh. But ol' Santa will probably want to keep my gift for himself....

Nice shots. You hold the camera very steady :-)

I was reading about professional Christmas lights installers. A package for an estate can go to $10,000, the most popular packages are the basic ones, $500-1,500.

DAL -- Amazing I can hold the camera steady for them 10-second exposures, innit? ;-)

HT -- You just hafta get out in the 'hood and see what's flashing!

calling Santa a "old commie bastard" sure won't help your chances, though.... ;-)

lovely light shows...

All in how the request is phrased. Don't want to get Santa to thinking.
Nice lights there in upper SoCal.
