I never got around to posting these pictures back in December. Funny that they are showing up for my first post of January, 2009 now that the season is almost past.
Anyway, Las Noches De Las Luminarias is a yearly holiday tradition here in the valley at our wonderful Desert Botanical Garden, it was even better than usual this year with the addition of "Chihuly, The Nature Of Glass". This is an exhibition of the glass artist Dale Chihuly that is currently running until the end of May. My Dad was meant to come along with me but couldn't because his trip was sadly postponed, and so I dragged Robert along. It really wasn't his thing, but he was very patient with me, and it was so stunning that at times it almost bordered on becoming a romantic evening. :)
These were the pictures I managed to salvage from the MANY blurred and shaky ones that I took that evening. I needed that tripod you see, yes the very same one that I sold at our garage sale back in May. Oh well, one lives and one learns!
