Like everyone else I pack holiday festivities and duties into every day approaching Christmas 2017. Last weekend I volunteered to assist with the Tryon Palace Candlelight celebration. A charming small town crowd braved the mid-50 degree chill. No snarled traffic, plenty of parking and no one rubbed shoulders unless all parties involved wished to participate in the rubbing.
I served hot chocolate and Spiced Tea on this chilly night which kept me too busy to snap anything but phone photos. After my shift, I had time to set up near the palace to try my hand at capturing the firework finale over the Palace. I scored one photo from that session and included it in the slideshow below.
I devote part of this week to selecting the photos from my 2017 collection to create Storm’s annual calendar/Christmas present. The winning photos in my personal contest are shown below in a slide show. If you follow this site religiously then you have seen them before. But I hope a glimpse of these might dredge up for you fond memories of a fun filled past year (at least they had that effect on me!).
