Holiday season 2021 #1

If you have been on this journey with me for any length of time, you know that at this time of the year I take a little time away from memorials. We should all be celebrating, in whatever fashion we do, the return of the light.

Tomorrow is the shortest day of the year, the winter solstice, and mankind has for most, if not all, of our history has found a way to mark this and welcome the return of the sun.

The next couple of posts will not specifically deal with light except for the fact that that is what photography is all about, light verses dark.

No lessons, just pics that I like.

Chief Little Owl greets all those who visit Bethany Beach, Delaware. This one made from a hand chosen red cedar log from Alaska replaces ones that have deteriorated over the years. The first was placed in 1976.

This one is projected to last up to 100 years. The artist Peter Toth has placed one such totem in each of the states and several across Canada.

The area at his base is always planted with vibrantly colored flowers in season.

Here's wishing you and yours a happy and peaceful season, come back on the 25th for a Christmas greeting. Join me at 9:00am.
