This weekend the kids wanted to build Gingerbread Houses, so we stocked up on Goldfish and lots of icing and candy. Unfortunately Martha and I ate most of the candy, so we stocked up again the next day and got to work. The building went into the night and even the next morning, but the results were fantastic. Henry’s house has a detached garage, swimming pool with spa, and even a Seattle Space Needle replica. Here are some pictures:

On the last morning in Ponte Vedra, I looked outside, the clouds were really sharp, and I sprinted out to get a shot of the choppy waves, bulky clouds and bright sun.
On the next to last week of 2011, our subject in the weekly photo challenge is Stillness. My idea was to focus on the tripod, something I have with me all the time and use on a regular basis. In this shot my shutter speed was 1/10th of a second, an ideal shot to take using a tripod, but it was my subject…so I held my breath, released my breath…not sure which one was better but I think I prefer taking shots after I let my breath out. Anyway, here is my photo of my trusty tripod:
Today I took a trip to the Midtown Green House in Midtown Atlanta with Matt Hoots to check out the progress on the house after lunch. Here are some pictures from the visit.
Here are some pictures from the day after Christmas at the “Barn” in Chastain Park.
