I wish you and your loved ones a very merry Christmas, whether it’s a white Christmas, or a wet one, or a sunny one. A few nights ago I went to our town’s best Christmas light displays with my kids and took picture after picture as we enjoyed the show. With these images, I’m sending some Christmas cheer your way!

WordPress weekly photo challenge: Illumination

This week’s WordPress photo challenge is illumination. The first photo that came to mind for this theme is one I took last weekend during our outing at Coronado Beach, in San Diego, California. I found this beautiful chandelier hanging from the ceiling of the large and historical lobby of the Hotel Del Coronado. Gorgeous!

When I think of illuminations, I can’t help but remembering the beautiful Christmas lights we saw this past holiday. I posted many Christmas light photos a few weeks ago, but here are a couple of my favorite.
