Fireworks






In years past, fireworks were illegal in New York.  In order to see a display, one needed to travel to a licenced fireworks event.  But this year, fireworks are legal for average citizens to buy and use.  This was taken standing on my back steps, with the camera on automatic exposure.  I did have it on manual focus though; the autofocus system had no idea what to do.

Christmas moon


It was a doubly rare event for me in Schenectady; a full moon on Christmas and a full halo.  Hand-held, so a little fuzzy, but it was too beautiful not to try.

Christmas ride





There was a Santa visit at City Hall, and many people came to see him.  There were rides around City Hall on this horse drawn wagon.  It's very unusual to see horses downtown these days!  No snow, and the temperature was in the mid-50s F.  I was wearing a short sleeved shirt!
