    On the bright side, at least that's not a whoopee cushion.

    Went and hunted down our Christmas tree today. Found a place that lets you cut down your own and had Blue Spruce. I've always wanted to have a Blue Spruce Christmas tree.

    Ian and Aaron found the tree, it was literally the first tree we saw.

    Put my tree up today. It's really the only Christmas tradition that matters to me these days:

    What a week!

    I spent a couple of days helping my friend, the artist, gettin his yule exhibits ready and setting up the exhibition at a yule-festival in an old converted cow-shed.

    Here he is, setting up a catcher of sorts:

    Still setting up:

    (Imgur wouldnt let me resize this one :rofl:
    There's a sideways view of that painting-thingy below

    His main exhibit, a things-found-on-the-local-beaches advent-wreath:

    [​IMG]

    He wasn't really interrested in selling any of his stuff; made most of it for himself -and set prices accordingly (artists :rolleyes: ).

    Another of his very personal items:

    (trunk of ivy, garland w. spruce, mosses, cones...
    It's a hanging alternative to the German invention of a standing christmass-tree.)

    (The Countess, owner of the place, liked his stuff so much that he was asked to decorate a nearby table.)​

    If selling stuff had been his objective, he could have sold thousands of these mossy angels:

    I thought I had the day off, but alas I have to go help him pack it all up again in a couple of hours... Oh well, he pays well -even if I'm just helping out a friend- but that is not PG 13-friendly :p

    ^Wow. That's impressive work!

    I've been decorating for Christmas. I'm not done yet. I did something terrible today- I broke an ornament that had been in the family for 45+ years:

    [​IMG]

    It was part of this set:

    [​IMG]

    Mom and Dad bought it at the Garber department store (they're long gone!) in Staten Island a year before I was born. It's survived five moves in four states, and I broke it. :(

    Ouch! Can it be saved? Some Crazy Glue, perhaps?

    Some of the pieces crumbled to dust. But the top is okay, so I might make a gold paper or foil cone to glue it to. So at least the Wise Men can stay together on the tree...

    Seven years ago today we were blessed with the most incredible little boy. He's beyond sweet and kind, a true gentle soul. I love him more than anything.

    Awww! Yep, definitely a school-boy now, no longer a baby. Handsome little devil, too.

    I bought a new camera, Canon Powershot SX410, last week. It cost me a little over $AUD200. I took this photo today. It is a Little Pied Cormorant.

    Thanks. This camera only cost a third of my previous camera which I bought in about 2006.

    Another picture I took today which shows some of Hobart's Westwrn suburbs taken from the Eastern Shore.

    Nice shots Miss Chicken!


    I took this one yesterday while visiting the Christmas Market at Columbus Circle. I kind of have a thing for cool looking doors.

    And I came across this forgotten shot from last year when I was putting together pictures for my wife to use in her yearly photo book of our daughter.

    And here is Max. He makes me think of a general in an army from a fantasy book in this one. Such a regal expression.
