A Photo a Week Challenge: New

New Year’s is Tuesday. I’ve always wondered why we begin the year in the middle of winter. The world is hibernating; most people hunker down and only head outside when absolutely necessary. On Tuesday, the calendar turns over and 2019 will make its appearance. What will the new year hold for each of us?

My photos are new outside Christmas lights for our house.

A Photo A Week Challenge: Lit from Within

Some of my favorite Christmas decorations are luminarias. I love simple ones (I’ve seen them made from milk cartons and Christmas lights) and the more elaborate ones (like this one at Temple Square in Salt Lake City). I love the warmth created by the light within.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Gilded

gilded_nmp

According to the dictionary, gilded as two meanings:

  1. Covered thinly with gold leaf or gold paint.
  2. Wealthy and privileged.

Whenever we travel through Europe, churches, palaces, and theaters are resplendent with gold leaf. I took this picture inside the Budapest Cathedral. For perspective, you can see the small crowd of people in the lower left corner. Grandeur and splendor do not even begin to describe the beauty and richness of this magnificent building. To me, this picture represents both meanings of gilded, because it took great wealth and privilege to build and decorate it.

Sorry about the late night posting for this challenge. It’s been a couple of crazy, stressful weeks. But that’s for another time. This week’s challenge is delicate. These beautiful blossoms drew me, and I’ve used other images from this same shoot for other challenges. I love the delicate look of the petals and the delicate pink coloring.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Street Lights

street_lights_nmp

In my travels, I have noticed that evening and night street lighting is part of the unique experience for each location I visit. Even within a city, the type of lighting used at night changes depending on the area. Time Square in New York is almost as bright at night as it is during the day, just a different kind of bright. Residential parts of Chicago use softer, less noticeable street lamps. A small village in Scotland might not have any lighting at night except what is in the sky. This lamp is on the Chain Bridge in Budapest, Hungary. The lamps line the bridge on both sides and help provide the beautiful illumination the city is famous for.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Celebration

celebration_nmp

Yesterday, the United States of America celebrated the signing of the Declaration of Independence and our victory over Great Britain in the American Revolution. We like to celebrate July 4th with fireworks, grilling food, and family gatherings, but especially with fireworks. My husband and I also watched the musical 1776 as a reminder of why we celebrate and what people went through 242 years ago to create this country that we love so much. No matter where you live or what holidays your nation has, we all have celebrations.
