Day 113 - Twenty Doors of Christmas

It's Christmas Eve, so I thought it might be good to walk through my little town of New Market.  After all, I have been out admiring so many other little towns, and I knew that New Market would be equally charming, especially on Christmas Eve.

I had fun collecting these twenty doors of Christmas.  It was sort of tricky, on the doors with reflective glass, not to get myself in the picture.  A little careful angling when I took the photo and then a little careful distorting in Photoshop helped to keep me out of focus.  I was happy so many of the doors did not have glass!  Another thing I was grateful for was that most of them did not have cars parked in front, so I could easily stand to get the shot.  Before I get comments that I should turn these photos into one of those "Doors of New Market" posters like they have in towns like Annapolis and Williamsburg, rest assured that that is something I am considering doing -- after the New Year.

I am having a quiet Christmas Eve tonight with my parents.  I'll go with my mother to hear her sing in the choir, and we'll have a nice dinner.  I'll spend the night there, and then tomorrow I will take dinner over and visit the grandchildren....if I can find them under all the wrapping paper balls and empty boxes that will surely be strewn about the living room.

I'm so grateful that I am able to do these walks every day.  So many people are so stressed and busy this time of year that a photo walk would be out of the question.  However, I have the time, the ability, and the resources to pull it off, and I am happy to share my little adventures with you.  I'm even more thrilled that you choose to follow them.

Merry Christmas, everyone!
