I am not sure how old these are - maybe from the 50's. I was going to go and check sometime later in the week. I just love these decorations that hang from the street lights in a nearby town of like 100 people. They also have a sleigh and reindeer with santa hanging across the main road. Our town also had them until they changed to the more modern lighted snowflakes below.

Animator's Palette - Black and White

Animator's Palette - Black and White

The Animator's Palette is an amazing restaurant on board both of Disney's cruise ships. When you first enter, the decor, sketches and "paintings" on the wall are all in black and white. The waiters' costumes are in black and white, too. Over the course of dinner, however, splashes of color start appearing, "paintings" gradually switch from black and white to color, and eventually the whole place is awash in color. The servers' costumes even switch to color.

[Winner of the "Restaurant" challenge in the Disney Photo Challenge group.]

Cape Disappointment Lighthouse

Cape Disappointment Lighthouse

Here is the Cape Disappointment Lighthouse without my car in front! This one is tough to get an interesting foreground and not lose the lighthouse in the distance! I could zoom in for a closer shot, but then all of the wonderful driftwood would not be included!

Cape Disappointment is located at the mouth of the Columbia River. The hills that you see off in the far distance are in Oregon. This lighthouse marks the entrance to the Columbia River and one of the most dangerous river bars in the world. This spot is collectively called the "Graveyard of the Pacific" due to the number of ships that have foundered here. This also is the only lighthouse in the state of Washington that has a day mark painted on it, the black band towards the top of the structure. Because of it's height on the cliff, the lighthouse blended in with the fog and background, so the Lighthouse Board painted the black band on it to provide a reference point for the mariners.

This is a pseudo-HDR as it is one image copied and turned into three different exposures. Capturing waves without ghosting in HDR is just about impossible. So I combined the three exposures, changed in my computer, merged in Photomatix and finally learned how to use the Unsharp Mask in Photoshop! Some adjustments in Lightroom 2 and a little vignetting.

This will be my last post for at least a couple of days as I am driving to Salt Lake City today to visit my sister, nieces and nephews! Hopefully I can post a few nice flower shots from the LDS Temple and some sunset shots from the Wasatch! Thanks for the views, comments and faves. Have a great Sunday.

DSC 5744 - Port Bickerton Lighthouse (Good Large)

DSC 5744 - Port Bickerton Lighthouse (Good Large)

Port Bickerton Lighthouse - Bickerton was settled in 1840 by a group of fishermen from Peggy's Cove. Although Bickerton Island was settled first, the area surrounding the lighthouse was settled soon afterwards. Port Bickerton, Nova Scotia, Canada

It was not until 1901 that the first of three lighthouses was constructed in Port Bickerton. Emery Taylor of Stillwater, N.S. was contracted to build the lighthouse with a bid of only five hundred dollars.

As the years passed, it was clear that the lighthouse was not a sturdy building and in about 1924 it was replaced, probably by a temporary light. In 1930 the light was first shown from the combined light and dwelling which still remains on the station. (This building is now the Nova Scotia Lighthouse Interpretive Centre and is open to the public.)

My Christmas @ the Lake - Cake

My Christmas @ the Lake - Cake

I had this idea several years ago. I read someplace, probably online, that if you baked cake mix in water fountain tapered cups you could frost it and have a Pine Tree.
We had quite a time finding the tapered paper water cups and when we finally did it was way past Christmas but we bought a box anyway. That was probably three years ago.
This year, with Christmas approaching I thought of it again.
I came up with the idea for the road, fence, lake and paths on my own. The "rocks" are chocolate candy with a coating that looks like rock or stone. The path is of the same candy which came in a mix of many different shapes, colors, and sizes.
The fence is large and smaller pretzels held together with frosting.
The road's surface is coarse, organic, brown, sugar, some mixed colored sugars, and some chocolate jimmies which are all regular decorations for cookies at the Christmas Season.
I think it turned out pretty good.
Originally the red (larger) stone path went back to an outhouse but it broke in too many pieces (when I tried to put the roof on) to put it back together, so another tree was added instead.
Merry Christmas to all my flickr friends!

Santa's Gift

Santa's Gift

Juliana, my oldest had the idea of creating a snowman! This one is the result (with a little bit of my help)! This was my favorite one!


Like many families we have some traditions during Xmas. I always make sugar cookies with the girls so we can leave some for Santa. I roll the dough and let them do whatever they want, using our cookie cutters, or just their imagination. After baking them, I tried to help them decorate with red and green icing. Here is the result of our work. I hope Santa enjoyed the gift as much as I enjoyed making them with my daughters.
