Traditionally, the family Christmas tree is set up the day after Thanksgiving, accompanied by a massive Christmas playlist. This year, with our kids gone to see in-laws, one living far away, and and one visiting his girlfriend’s families, it got done a day early. However, the one tradition that will happen today is that moment when all the day’s work is done (outside lights today), and we sit on the couch, turn off all the lights so that only the warm glow of the tree washes over us, and listen to Silent Night ( https://youtu.be/hTSkS0Abas4 ) by Mannheim Steamroller, arguably, the finest arrangement of that beloved hymn. May this season be filled with light and peace for you and yours.
2019 has been a wonderful year, and a busy year. Our family is growing and lots of activity and change (the good kind) professionally, so, I am not able to get out and shoot as much. Here are a few moments from a park with two of my grandchildren.
My wife and I are back in New York to visit my mom. It is her 90-ish birthday. I am not allowed to know her actual age! Naturally we spent some time at the shore. It was a warm, breezy day. First of a few posts from my favorite place to be.
I am much more at ease with landscape work than portraits. I find the entire process to be so challenging. I am content with how this one turned out. This is grandson number two.
Three of our four children live in the city of Chicago, so, we are often in this beautiful city. Just a few shots from the Logan Square neighborhood while visiting my oldest son and his family.
Yup… grandkids rock.
