2013 Deck – Week 50

This year, my daughter was once again in a Nativity Play, this time a short skit / musical number at the Marian Academy, it was originally meant for the School’s concert, and apparently it was so well received that they were asked to perform it for the PTA concert as well.

I went to see the play as much as to try to get a few photos.

I’m convinced that I’m not an “event” photographer, I don’t think I came away with much good ones, but I processed this one for the Deck Project.

I hope you like it.

Merry Christmas to all, may the blessings of the season be with you and yours.



2011 Deck – Week 49

I think that Christmas Carols (and Christmas music in general) lends to the “feel” of Christmas as much as many of the other traditions associated with the Day and the Season.  Whether its Carollers on the street or in the church, the chorus of voices or the clarity of the soloist singing those traditional carols (or the new songs) helps get me in the Christmas Mood.

This was a photo taken at the annual Festival of Carols held at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception (Brickdam Cathedral), it is one of the few times I’ve attempted higher ISOs on the Canon Digital Rebel T1i, although there’s a fair amount of noise it wasn’t too bad for the shot, and I did a bit of noise reduction in Topaz  🙂
