Today's photos don't really have anything to do with the holiday season, but they evoke similar feelings in my wizened, walnut-sized heart. The are both from Main Street USA - at night! That's when Main Street (arguably) looks its very best, turning from a reasonable facsimile of an old fashioned street to something a bit more magical (oh how I've grown tired of that word!).
We'll start with this overall view, facing towards the castle from Town Square. The buildings are ablaze with lights, which their warm glow over everything. The street looks especially busy this night - I wonder if the photo was actually taken in August, when kids were still out of school and the park would be at it's most crowded.
Now for a look at Town Square, where our pregnant friend is resting on a bench. Film speeds had improved enough so that a long exposure wasn't necessary... there are only a few blurs, rather than the streets full of ghosts seen in earlier night shots. I didn't think to zoom in on the Emporium windows to see what dioramas were on display!
I'd like to wish all of my readers a very happy holiday season, no matter how you celebrate it. Hopefully you are with people you like, eating good food, and opening plenty of presents!
