Sunday Stills – Holiday Lights and Decorations

The French have too much class to do garish lights, so it’s just as well I’m in California for this challenge!

Most houses in this town have some sort of light display going on so I was sure I’d find a few shots without too much trouble.  Unfortunately, though, it’s been pretty wet for the last couple of evenings, so today was my first (and last) chance to go out with camera in hand and try to capture a flavour of the lights.

I found a (sort of) horsey one.  This one is just for for Kris, Emma and Ramsay, to wish Ramsay a continued recovery :

This house is just a few minutes walk from my sister’s place :

I started using my camera in manual mode after that one, though, deliberately underexposing a little, which I think worked better.

I like the shameless crassness of the giant inflatable figures!

but I loved the simplicity of this porch

and if it’s simplicity you’re looking for, you can’t beat this one :

Joyeux Noël, tout le monde!
