Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
I’ve been busy wrapping presents and going out for last minute gifts. I did finally find the perfect gift for that friend who has everything and then a bottle of Chocolate Port for my hubby at one of my favorite specialty groceries here in Southern Arizona; AJ’s. No, we are not in Central Park! Though I do long to go back. This is one of those images that takes me to a Christmas like setting like when I was growing up in Idaho. Here in Arizona, we do not get snow and I do miss it at Christmas. Not the cold though. I don’t miss the cold one itty bit. I left the cold country many years ago as it seem to freeze me right to the bone.
I had a little fun with this image in Photoshop. Thought not perfect, the windows and the lighting outside is now aglow with light. I also enriched the color of the buildings and the cottage. I don’t know if it’s re-opened but it was once a restaurant that was closed when we were there.
