Last night was the 2nd Annual Christmas Light Hunt, in which I pedal about the neighborhood looking to take pictures of lights on houses. Ride membership remained steady, with one person participating. Unlike last year, when temperatures were below freezing and snow/ice were a factor, this year was extremely mild. It’s nice not having to avoid black ice while cruising in the dark. While there was no ice, I did add a degree of difficulty by bringing a camera tripod with me, in order to improve the quality of the photography and thus enhance the viewing experience for you, Dear Reader. If there is a simple way to ride a bike while holding a camera tripod, I didn’t discover it last night.
There were many excellent displays this season, perhaps because the warmer weather allowed more people to get extravagant. Whatever the reason, I took so many pictures that I decided to create my first-ever Christmas Light Video!
