Photos and Traditions

This weekend my husband and I took our three kids to Disneyland.  My first thought was how am I going to keep up with my #nerdlution challenge?  But, here I am iPad in hand, posting to my blog for Day 6 of the challenge!  I started out the morning with an invitation to write a haiku by Kevin Hodgson (@dogtrax).  Since I am at Disneyland, here is my haiku.

Haiku from Disney
The happiest place on Earth
Long lines await me

We actually got here on Friday night.  I tried taking pictures with my iPhone of all the holiday decorations they put up.  But, for some reason, my night photographs don’t turn out very well.  I have to talk to my friend, Kim Douillard (Thinking Through My Lens).  She is an expert at taking pictures with her iPhone.  I don’t know why I keep getting a shadow of light when I take pictures with my iPhone at night.  And, how do I get rid of it?   I decided to stop taking pictures and wait until the next morning  to take them.

The next morning I decided to take pictures of the same things I photographed the night before.  Here are pictures of the Christmas tree and the garland across Main Street.

I love Disneyland over the holidays.  I love the decorations.  It’s a tradition I share with my brother, and sister, and their children.  I am trying to enjoy every moment, because I realize as my daughters get older, these moments will be few and far between.  Soon, my kids will be going off to college.  Hopefully, they will get married and have kids of their own.  I hope my daughters can continue this tradition, maybe with their children.  Who knows?  For now, I am happy in the Happiest Place on Earth.  🙂

  1. Hi Judy,

    I’m guessing your photo issue has to do with light. In the dark when there are bright lights somewhere near they can “blow out” the whole photograph. Love that you retook the photos during the day. Light is key to photography…and I keep learning from my own mistakes! Enjoy your happy place! 🙂

    Kim
