In December I made several trips to the Venice Canals and Venice Beach for a walking tour I was working on.
I was happy to see some people had their Christmas decorations up.
And unlike my visit in June when it was dark and dismal and the canal was in the process of being dredged (see post here), the sun was out and everything was looking cheery.
This ladybug was having a good day too!
Even Yoda and Darth Veda were in the holiday spirit!
But I wasn’t too sure about these two snowy egrets!
However, this fella seemed to be enjoying the sunshine.
One of the things I appreciate about the canals as a photographer is all the reflections… and the juxtaposition of the boats.
And the variety of architecture is always fun to photograph.
Giant candy canes growing right out of the bushes.
Too bad we can’t have holiday decorations all year round.
But we do have snowy egrets posing for the camera in every season.
It wouldn’t be Christmas without the poinsettias.
Don’t mess with the ducks… the residents of the canals are especially protective of them.
This palm tree could use a trim. They need to be manicured on a regular basis or the fronds will drop in the wind.
I wrote the names of my cats on a scrap of paper and left it on this pet tree.
I’ll be posting more random photos from my December visit from time to time.
