Christmas-"House of Blues"
Lens: 18-250 Pentax Camera: K5 Photo Location: Fellsway-Saugus Ma ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 2s Aperture: F11 
Posted By: charliezap, 12-11-2012, 08:24 AM

This home is 2 miles from me and every year it is done up in a spectacular fashion for Christmas. This year it is predominately Blue. This was a "recon" mission for me to check it out. I'm going back if and when we get some snow on the ground and retake the home.It is quite nice looking when there is snow but these will have to do until then.--charliezap

Really fantastic Charlie. I love the reflections in the second shot. I can't tell if that is a reflection in the last one but it is another of my favorites in the series.
