N is For Night

Sleeping By Fairy Light
Photo by David Grant

It's time again For ABC Wednesday. If you aren't participating in ABC Wednesday, you are missing out on a lot of fun.

The letter this week is "N" Here are some pictures that I have taken at "N"ight.

Tending The Fire
DADDY WATCHING THE BONFIRE

On a cold winter evening Daddy was watching the last remnants of a bonfire. I took the picture with only the light of the fire. The shutter speed was so slow that it is a bit blurry, but it is still one of my favorite photos.

Karaoke
LATE NIGHT KARAOKE AT RELAY FOR LIFE

At the Polk County Relay For Life, there was Karaoke and Open Mic until the early morning hours. (Relay For Life is an all night event because cancer never sleeps.) I like the way this singer was silhouetted, and shot the picture from behind with natural light.

Ranger Baseball
LAMP AT A TEXAS RANGERS BASEBALL GAME

The lampposts at the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington are big baseballs. I just had to take a picture of one as we were leaving the ballpark.

Winter Wonderland
CHRISTMAS LIGHTS AT GARVIN WOODLAND GARDENS

Garvan Woodland Gardens in Hot Springs Arkansas is a beautiful 200 acre botanical garden. It is pretty year round, but during the Christmas holiday season the gardens are decorated with more lights than you could ever imagine. I'm looking forward to visiting again this Christmas season.

  13. Great photos, Richie! And very creative! I particularly like the silhouetted singer. What I've wanted to ask you for some time now is: who is the banner referring to? It says Queen Wilhelmina, but it couldn't be our Queen Wilhelmina, who ruled over the Netherlands from 1896-1948, could it? Just curious!

  16. I am back again to thank you for the information about Queen Wilhelmina! You can use that for " that's My World"! Queen Wilhelmina was the grand mother of our queen of today, Queen Beatrix.

  28. I really like the lamp from The Ball Park or whatever lame name they are calling it now. Ranger stadium a better name but the new stadium is much better.

  44. Thanks for stopping by at my place - I see you have plenty on the letter N this week :)

    You asked about Nerine preparation over at my place. They're a bulb that likes well drained soil that's baked in the summer. So a dry, gravelly hot spot is ideal for them. The neck of the bulb should just be poking through the soil.
