Luminaria Fire

There’s a COLD front moving in and we’re about to have our first freezing temperatures this week. I wanted to cover my most tender (non-native) plants this evening but it’s raining. I’m hoping they can tolerate one night. Anyway….the cold made me happy we went to Luminaria on Thursday night. This photo is from last year when it was especially cold during the event. But they had these wonderful fire pits in several places to keep everyone warm.

This image was taken with my Droidx held tight against the arm on my chair.

Big Bugs

Last night we went to Luminaria at the Desert Botanical Gardens. A bonus photo op for me this year was David Rogers’ BIG BUGS sculptures! They are amazing and great fun to photograph at night. Hand held, of course 🙂

Lensbaby Luminaria

A composite of two images taken at the Desert Botanical Garden Luminaria this year and last. The stars (this year) are a result of using a Creative Aperture Disk in my Lensbaby which turns any point of light into the shape cutout of the disk. The kit includes some blank disks too so you might see some kitties in the near future 🙂

Lensbaby Stars and couple were both captured at ISO 1600.
