lanterns

It was very cold that night, and most people with sense stayed inside. The light show was interesting but I have to say these lanterns are really kind of boring to photograph, compared to what they’d look like with oil lamps or real candles in them. But still…I had to take the shot.

star vault

This was my favorite of the various light installations at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden’s LIGHTSCAPE tour – it’s a vaulted arch that visitors walked underneath. I particularly like the way the varied spacing of the light strings gives sort of a quilted look to the scene.

proper shoppers

Oh, sure it says “proper” and it looks all ranch-y and friendly and whatnot, but it doesn’t have the sort of clothes any ranchers around here (or anyplace that I’ve seen) wear. I guess that sign in the window – the one for a company based in Hollywood – was the clue that I missed before I went in…

sisters

My workflow is probably weird. But it works. What I do is edit the photos a couple of weeks out from the day they’ll post. I give them a title, and start the blog post. Then closer to time, I’ll write whatever I think needs to be said.

When I saw a post that I had titled “Sisters” I didn’t have the faintest recollection of what the photo was. I am not in contact with my own sister, so the topic isn’t exactly something that I talk about or photograph or anything like that. And I was temporarily confused.

And then, when I looked at the photo, I remembered that I’d found a little part of this cemetery that was dedicated to deceased nuns from the Sisters of St. Mary of Namur. That made a LOT more sense. (By the way, the Sisters of Namur were established in Namur, Belguim, and have had a presence in Fort Worth since 1873.)

There is just no way a face-down toy bunny in a cemetery is anything but sad.
