Yesterday evening as we were driving home from Christmas dinner at my folks house, we saw one of the youngest crescent moons we’ve ever witnessed. New moon was shortly after noon on the 24th, this was at 5 p.m. on the 25th, a young waxing crescent moon that was only hours old.
A couple of days ago, I caught Mallory in the act of exploring the tree. I love the expression on her face in the first shot.
Mostly she has been able to leave it alone, although there were a few of the kitten ornaments on the floor on Christmas day.
By the way, unwrapping presents is probably the best idea humans have EVER HAD!
Here are a couple of images I was moved to take during the cruise. They don’t really fit into any category.
The first one was taken during our lunch at Fuchal, Madeira. The dish was an appetizer, melon drizzled with Madeira. The sun was refracted by my water glass. I was entranced by the rainbow across my food.
The second was taken late in a meal aboard ship. We had ordered a special bottle of wine from the Wine Connoisseur’s Collection. As we were finishing the last bit, I had just swirled the wine in my glass and looked down on the table to see the shadow of the glass of wine projected on the table cloth. I actually went to our cabin to get the camera so I could capture this rather beguiling image.
Happy Boxing Day!
