From Snow to Palm Trees and a New Year’s Token

In my last post I showed you photos of the seven inches of snow that fell late on Christmas Day and the day after. We left all that behind and headed for palm trees and warmer temperatures, but more on that later. Our New Year’s Eve started out like this. Let me tell you the snow was a distant memory at this point.


By dusk we had staked a place on the streets of Hollywood Studios in Disney World to see the Spectacle of Dancing Lights.  I saw the lights on the buildings before they were lit so I knew it was going to be unlike any other light display I had seen.


And yet, I was still blown away by the scope of it all.


These photos give you some idea of what it looked like,

hny_4 but they cannot do justice to the amazing sensation we experienced when they turned on all these lights at once.


I wanted to stand under them all night long.


So this was my New Year’s Eve and now it is official – 2011 has arrived! Happy New Year!

It is an opportune time to offer a small token of my appreciation for your visits and comments last year. I present the following post cards for your enjoyment or art projects or just because. I have loaded a very good resolution of these images that you can access by clicking on them.

I wish you the happiest of New Years
and may the best await you in 2011!
