Photo-A-Day! Monday, December 12th

12 Days, 3 Hours, 35 Minutes
Until Christmas!

I don't know about you, but I'm a sucker for romantic comedies. Especially those scenes when the couple is on a date walking along a boardwalk, in a park, or down the streets of a city. I like how lighthearted the moment is. Where anything goes and you don't have to take yourself so seriously. This past Saturday night was one of those moments.
The square nearby is having carriage rides - just part of the many festivities going on there this month. (I've posted about the light show and outdoor ice rink there.) Colorfulpen offered to take better half and I, so we could ride in the carriage. The idea seemed so exciting - I have always wanted to ride in a horse and carriage, and under all those lights in the square? Yes, please!
Sadly, everyone else had the same idea. When we got there the line was long and it was too cold to stand around waiting for a chance to ride. So instead, colorfulpen and I tried to take some pictures of the carriage. That wasn't going so well for me - my camera hates the dark.
We all walked around infront of the court house where there were fountains, statues, and a big lit up Christmas tree in the center. There were people everywhere, laughing and celebrating - some with glowing hair (which you bought at a booth near the carriages,) and just the brightest spirit lingering around the area. As colorfulpen was off taking photos for her own blog, better half and I wandered around. Much to his dismay, I snapped photos of us - infront of the Christmas tree, the fountains, and everywhere else I could think of! Even without the carriage rides I was having a blast! And the photos? Even funnier! It was like a scene right out of those romantic comedies.

Today's photo will not be one of those goofy pictures better half and I took, but a picture of part of the fountain. I had actually been wanting to take this picture ever since the first time I had been in the square. So without further adieu -

  1. Nice shot! A couple of my fountain pictures turned out pretty well.

    We'll have to go back so you guys can do the carriage ride.

    Ha! Great quote. George Carlin was a hoot.
