Christmas in Boise

It’s almost Christmas here in Idaho (and last I checked most other places). I spent some time running around town tonight trying to get some Christmasy shots. I’m generally unimpressed with the Christmas lights this year. Winter finally made it’s presense known in Idaho in the past week or two, a bit of a late start, but considering the snow in August. I guess it’s ok.

Took this shot downtown, apparently a hocky game was starting so parking was fun, but had enough time between groups of people to get some good shots. I particularly like this one. Which my wife informed me I had to title “City Sidewalks.” Fitting I guess.

We’ll be headed out of town for much of next week, but considering we’ll be seeing our new puppy for the first time… I’m sure you’ll hear from me. Merry Christmas.

Setting the scene: I was sitting on ice covered rocks on the side of a half frozen lake with wind blowing across it at me, it being 5 degrees, watching my camera blink off and back on every thirty seconds for two hours……. Continue reading »
