fun with construction paper

Last night I had a fantastic time driving around my neighborhood taking pictures of all the Christmas lights. Which is not the sort of thing I would normally do, but I made a paper lens hood for my camera, and it made all the lights look like stars. It was one of those nights where a cold front is coming in so all the leaves are whipping around, and the iPod’s on shuffle but still manages to play only the good songs. Everything was lovely and perfect until I stopped in front of one house and rolled down my window to take a picture, and then all I could hear was the tinny voice of a six-foot-tall animatronic Santa singing “Sleigh Ride.” Yikes.

And double yikes.
