Night Lights #2

I'm changing the title of this series from "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas" to "Night Lights." Photographing houses decorated for Christmas certainly isn't a new idea but it is a convenient idea for me just now. So you will be seeing Christmas lights in Houston for the next month.

Tonight I drove over to an area of Houston called The Heights. It is an old neighborhood that has for the most part been taken care of over the years. There was one street where a number of houses had lights strung way up into gigantic oak trees with tails of lights hanging down. The neighbors must have hired equipment to hang the lights or maybe one of the neighbors owns the company. At any rate it was very striking to see the lights soaring into the sky and looping down again.

 I went to a meeting of some photography friends who gather once a month to talk about what they are working on, photography books, essays, exhibits or videos they have seen. They always inspire me.

I love seeing these and I love the Heights. I grew up there and I am so happy to see that it is now trendy! I plan to move back next year.
