This was a surprise! I popped up to Frederick to look for pre-Christmas sales at the Costco there and as I'm about ready to pull into the parking lot, I hear explosions going off next to me. Frederick was having their annual Christmas fireworks display. I parked quickly and whipped out the...

The squares within Savannah are certainly the most fun to photograph. Whether it's a statue or an area where Forrest Gump was photographed waiting on his park bench (which I'm told is now in a museum and is now a tulip bed) or just trees and flowers, all of the squares have their own beauty. I...

One candle for each of 23,000 casualties during the battle. Unfortunately, we had our first snow that evening and a fair number of candles had been extinguished by the rain, wind, or snow so the effect wasn't quite what I hoped for. It was certainly cold though!

Night lights. I didn't realize they were actually closed on Christmas but it was nice to take some pictures without cars in the parking lot.
