All Decked Out!
SmugMug Daily Link
Every year when we go to Lights on the Neuse, we pass through the town of Clayton, NC. And, each year Main Street is all decked out for Christmas with beautiful storefronts and older historic homes all aglow. I just love this big white mansion of a house. Looks like they use it for catering parties and such. I almost caught this gorgeous white horse in front of the house. Just now was to through a point and shoot flash far enough in traffic no less to capture the scene. I had asked the horse owner a few blocks over if it was OK to use flash with the horse, and she said yes.
Here is the horse up the road a bit from the prior shot. Finished taking one couple for a horse drawn buggy ride, the owner was trying to line up some more business and talking with friends.
Back to the house, this was the scene through the front door. I like the sneak peek effect. She never knew I was there.
Here's a close-up of one of the bows in the front yard. So pretty!
Thanks to Leslie Perry the owner of Fantasy Fun Carriage for letting me take the pics of her horse.
