The Christmas Group Photo

Find all types of Gift Cards at Amazon.com for any occasion

On Christmas Eve or Christmas Day I get asked to take a group photo which is akin to herding cats into a group and getting them all to look at me rather than just groom. The lighting is always poor and I can count on someone having their eyes closed. Here is a decade of these things

This one was successful, lighting was good and everyone looks pretty good. New Boston, NH

Another success, white balance was a challenge though. I’m pointing at a Christmas Card from my niece and her husband in Colorado. This photo was taken in New Boston, NH

The year I tried using a flash, absolute disaster. Count the errors.

Fisheye experiment! Lighting required a long exposure which blurred Daisy

Thanksgiving in Nashua

Check out the Black Friday Special at Amazon

I hope all had a great Thanksgiving. We had a nice time in Nashua with the family. In keeping with tradition, Emily brought cannoli from the North End in Boston. We usually queue that up with a viewing of the Godfather but this year opted for the second film of the The Dark Knight Trilogy. I think seeing Heath Ledger’s Glasgow smile might give me nightmares, he played a great Joker.

Be safe on Black Friday,  order from my Amazon Links, it can be dangerous out there.

I can always count on Susan to provide a wealth of expressions for the camera. We all struggled with this nine square puzzle. A good task after our caloric binge.

Jesse and Alex in Nashua, NH for Thanksgiving. After dinner,  Alex, Jesse and I entertained the family with a rendition of Barrett’s Privateers which seemed appropriate because Alex’s middle name is Barrett.

Watching the Macy’s Parade. We noted that my mom is older than the parade itself. The balloons were nice but the bad lipsyncing was painful to watch.

The bird was great, soup and sandwiches for a week.

The B Dazzle Scramble Squares puzzles look simple but are extremely difficult. They can be found on Amazon and make GREAT gifts.
