Atlanta Lights

We visited Atlanta over Christmas to see family, and while there saw the lights at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. I only had my cellphone (not my DSLR) but tried to get some shots of the lights. This light-tunnel was fun to walk through.
The decorations were impressive.
The best part of the display consisted of hundreds of hanging strings of lights, changing colors in time with music.
You could get right up among them on a pedestrian bridge.
There was even a dragon.
It's definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.

Snuggling Dogs

Our dogs aren't best buddies, but once in a while they'll snuggle up next to each other, like in this cellphone shot.

X-Mas Trees

I think these trees are wishing you a Merry X-Mas! And this will be my last post until it's time for next week's Skywatch Friday post as I intend to devote the next week to family.

Osaka Castle (1)

Everywhere we went in Japan we visited castles, and Osaka was no exception, as it includes Osaka Castle (大坂城 or 大阪城). The grounds were beautifully kept.
I could have walked around for hours.
But the castle beckoned!
Restoration (reconstruction) was completed in 1997. Inside it's a museum and photography isn't allowed.

Kyoto's Bamboo Forest

One of Kyoto's famous sights is the Bamboo Forest. Last week I showed you a photo looking straight up.
It's exactly what it sounds like, with tree-size bamboo making an impressive sight.
It's one of the many must-see sights in the area.

For Our World Tuesday, a few cellphone shots of the Las Vegas Strip as we wandered around (we stayed one night to break up the drive to Los Angeles). It's Paris in the desert!
Here's the famous Bellagio.
The Mirage is always nice to see.
And finally, a random fountain near the Wynn.
