I always enjoy the view from the high bridge. We haven’t gotten a lot of snow this season but enough to kind of cover up the brown dead grass.
I took several pictures of the Christmas tree in downtown St. Paul. I missed the tree lighting this year. Christmas was relocated this year. The tree is usually in Rice park but the park is undergoing a major renovation.
This year’s tree is at Landmark Plaza on St. Peter street which is on the other side of Landmark Center. It wasn’t hard to find.
It wasn’t until I had taken a bunch of pictures and was halfway home that I noticed my lens was set to manual focus. That would have worked out fine if I had manually focused. \
The wreath was on a train in Chatanooga. I was there for a workshop and it rained every day except while I was in the workshop. I got a few pictures here and there of some old trains and buildings.
The day I arrived they were decorating for the holidays at the Chatanooga Cho Cho. The train depot wasn’t all that different the Union Depot in St. Paul. It was smaller.

The pictures I take with my phone automatically go to Google Photos. These appeared as a look back to the Fall of 2016. It must have been a beautiful day.
I am so happy that my parent’s wedding pictures are mostly in black and white. The pictures are in perfect condition. Most of the color photos that were taken that same day have faded color and detail.
This picture is one of my favorites. They have been married for 60 years.
