Better Late Than Never
Because of Laurie's request, lots of the Mexican bloggers have been posting Nativity scenes. I'm late with mine although offically the three wise men should have just been added to the scene today. This is the nativity scene in the Jardin in San Miguel de Allende. It has been so difficult to photograph. It is set up in the back of a gazebo and either the east or west sun is hitting the front of it so that everytime I photographed it if I had the manger where you could see it in the dark, a circle of washed out area where the sun hit the opening surrounded it. Last night after chasing the Three Wise Men, I stopped and tried one more time. Now they have this hideous orange colored light directly over the manger. I never could balance the light to make it all look "right." But folks this is the best I can do this year.
