Athens, GA at night in December

There's something really magical about night photos!
And so the indefatigable magical mystery tour photographers of Athens, GA set out for a night time shoot!  (well, one turned out to be supremely fatigable and was unable to join us....and we hope he regrets it!!!)

Here are some of our favorite pictures from our evening out in Athens - which was followed up by a very nice post-shoot supper at one of the members' houses....we MUST do this again!

so for your favorites in the Comments!  

E 1 Lady on a Pole!
E2 Glow

E 3 The Dark Path

E4 Clayton Street

E5 The Shaking Christmas tree!
Here are some of Pat's photos:

                                                            P1  Athens City Hall

                           P2  "The Spirit of Athens"  catching a falling star with the new moon behind her.

                                           P3  City Hall portico with winter trees and the new moon

                                                                   P4  The base of the City Christmas Tree

P5 Close up of some of its ornaments 

P6 Christmas on Clayton

                                    P7  Intrepid Magical Mystery Tour photographers Alexis and Elizabeth risk their
 lives as they photograph in the street!

P8 And here are the three of us--Elizabeth, Pat, and Alexis--taken by Pat's camera on a tripod. She
missed Jeff, who usually did these group photos! 

Finally, here are three photos from Alexis:

A1  Impressionistic photo of Pat and Elizabeth and Christmas tree lights.

A2 Elizabeth and Pat on side steps of City Hall

A3 Pat and Elizabeth walking down a magically lit street

It  was a great evening, and later having supper at Pat's by candlelight was the appropriate ending to the magical mood.


  1. So far my favorite is Elizabeth's (E2) "Glow."

  2. oh I think the picture of the intrepid 4 minus one - takes some beating!!!

  3. I was proud of using my tripod to get us all in the picture.

  4. All so good! I like the two of The Spirit of Athens, Glow, the ornament close-up, and the two Clayton Street photos and, of course, the shots of the photographers! It sounds like so much fun! I hope you cover more Athens holidays and events!
