Lake Lanier Lights!

Family night at the Magical Night of Lights at Lake Lanier. Miles of beautiful, huge Christmas light displays and a fun, albeit overpriced carnival. A shout out to my son's bus driver. On the way home from school, he told her we were going there that evening and she handed him a $10 off coupon. Later, we realized it was only good for "county employees" and an ID was required. Let's just say a flash of the ol MBA school ID sufficed. And another shout out to the awesome family who handed us their roasting sticks and shared a huge bag of marshmallows with us so we could roast over the fire pits. And the craziest part was when we were all loaded on the Ferris wheel and I looked back and saw that all of the electrical cables were submerged underwater below us. I have to admit, I did think for one second about what it would be like getting electrocuted while riding a Ferris wheel and that maybe we would since karma knew we tried to pass off the school ID for a county ID. Thankfully, we survived. But someone really should make sure those cables get out of the water! Gotta love those shady rides with the equally shady workers. Good times!

kid in motion + low-light conditions. Sounds like a recipe for terribly fuzzy pictures, but these turned out to be fabulous. I love the feeling of these pics. Something about the tones captures the carnival atmosphere perfectly.
