Holiday Lights

The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park is a seasonal display of holiday lights synchronized to music.  It is an amazing display of Christmas lights and decorations.

Kat Sloma's most recent Exploring with a Camera series is Creative Lights.
I can't say that I had much time to be creative, but I was fortunate enough to experience the "Creative Lights" in person while visiting Disney in Orlando a few weeks ago.

I know that Kat is fond of bicycles...

and who isn't fond of pink mouse ears !

I am delighted that you took the time to view my photos.. want to see the other 597 photographs I took while at Disney????  - smile -

Disney Holiday Reflections

A big thank you to my Mom for taking her "kids" to Disney in Orlando!
This shop window caught my eye because my brother loves M&M's and these look like M&M's with mouse ears, dressed up for Christmas.

It wasn't intentional, and I was pleasantly surprised to see the word "GIFTS"  reflected in the photo. 

Thank you James at Weekend Relfections for hosting such a nice spot for us to share our reflections!

Photo Art Friday - December 2nd

This week Bonnie at Pixel Dust Photo made the suggestion that we try some edits we have been wanting to try, but have felt were too hard or that we just haven't had the time for.  The photo art could be produced from following a tutorial or simply the result of some creative play with new photo art tools and techniques.
I chose a photo that I wasn’t really sure what I would do with, but thought I would experiment with layers and the eraser tool.  I used Photoscape for most of my editing, and to make the layers. After much editing, I didn’t use the eraser tool as much as I had originally thought, and only to bring back the orange color of the swan’s beaks.
I just could not decide if I like the photo with text or without. I think that is one of my next goals - learn how to make text look better.

And with Bonnie's texture "Gratitude"

Happy Friday to all of my friends, especially those posting and exploring at
