This was taken on a walk near my hotel in Albuquerque, New Mexico. It’s sort of a strange perspective as I was trying to crop out a banner tied to the bottom of the windmill and stay out of traffic. I do like the starburst effect the Fujifilm 18-55mm f2.8-4.0 lens. It is a sweet lens for me.
… then off to meet a friend for coffee and conversation. I will be taking down the tree today or tomorrow, so I thought I’d pst at least one image of the tree decorations. It seemed like the gift giving this year had a special meaning. My youngest daughter helped pick out gifts for my grandchildren so they were happy with what they received. I also did not spend much money this year as I did not have much money to spend on them. Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends.

On early morning trips to any one of my favorite coffee shops you will find a few regulars and I’m not talking about regular coffee. John is one the regulars. The baristas always greet him when he walks in the door carrying the morning paper under his arm and sharing his inviting smile. The baristas know him, the customers know him. It’s people like John that make the world a good place to call home.
