    O Tannenbaum, O Tannenbaum
    They're coming now to cut you down
    Your lush green leaves will soon be brown
    And strewn around you on the ground
    O Tannenbaum, O Tannenbaum
    You look so lovely in our town

    I like the first, FredBerg; the tilt of the temple toward the tree, and how the tree-form is replicated in the building behnd. Cool composition, beautiful in B&W 'cause color would distract from your point. A little morose, perhaps, on one side of the coin the way you stated it in your Englishized parody of the traditional German verse, it does fit finally into the theme of the cycle of life and how the decision to engage inevitably involves tragedy; though transcendence too.

    'tis the season to report the condition of our geocache to the Kane County Forest Preserve. While we are not avid geocachers by an means, Chicago Carol and I created and maintain the only registered geocache at the preserve at Dick Young / Nelson Lake; GC21JCT, Tiny Trivia Treasure Trove with Lake View, at N41° 49.891 amd W088° 22.542. It contains a number of semi-precious mineralogocal specimens for souvenirs for those who find it and a scroll that details the natural history of the glacial-formed kettle lake which it overlooks. If you are ever in the area, please stop by and sign the log. (These pics were taken with my Pentax Optio W80 for documentary purposes for the park district, but since they reflect the appearance of the area here, I thought they might be appropriate to post in George's thread).

    This one here is the actual geocache itself at the aforementioned coordinates. It is hidden in plain sight inside a composite fake rock shell. Under that is a clear, Lucite box in which the various treasure items are contained along with the educational scroll, pencil, and weatherproof log book. If you are ever in the area and decide to hunt this cache, watch out for the poison ivy!

    It's a Dickens of a thing but apart from Marley they all look too hale and hearty for the London of the 19th century!

    Gingerbread

    Went to see my daughter in a school program, and they had a gingerbread house on display that the whole class helped create.

    Here are a few shots taken from about 8 feet away with my 55-250 zoom.

    So nice to see what happens in your neck of the woods at Christmas, with the damn knees I have to wait for it to come to me as did Amanda and Brendan this weekend along with a festive hat. They are at mine for Christmas dinner, I can't wait to see the little guy getting excited and opening everything - thats my present this year.
