Illuminations at Botanica

Taken at Botanica during their holiday illuminations display, the night was aglow with thousands of lights.

Glass carrots

A four year olds description of the Christmas Tree: "It has pink balls, bows, candy canes, lights, beads.......... and glass carrots!"

Kids say the darndest things.

When I was a four year old - these were better known as icicles.

Wishing each of you a happy and healthy holiday season - enjoyed in the ways and values, of your tradition and culture.

Train tracks

Another shot of the old railway bridge.
(Please excuse the language - more graffiti)

Railroad Bridge

This is the old Railway Bridge I wanted to photograph.
It's located about a block or two, east of the John Mack Bridge posted on theme day.
I like this bridge so much, I dared to venture past the beer bottle and graffiti to share it with all of you. Luckilly, there were no drinkers or painters to be seen, it was a nice and quiet day by the river.

By the looks of this graffiti, and the the beer bottle, I'm thinking someone was drinking and painting (without authorization on public property). I guess it means something to those that can read the symbols and lettering. To me, it meant nothing. I don't see a lot of graffiti around Wichita. But, as with most major cities - it happens. Continuing on this walk along the river, tomorrow, we'll come to where I was headed - the neat old railroad bridge.

You all had some good, and funny guesses. I smiled as I read them, and LOL'd @ Fenix!

Beer bottle

This Bud's not for me. This beer bottle was seen while walking along the river bank, in search of a railway bridge I wanted to photograph. Whoever tossed this bottle aside, had only drank about half of it. Tomorrow, I'll show you what I saw next. And, the next day will be a photo of the bridge I was after.

Just as I was taking this photo from under a bridge, a young person with me, was tossing a dirt clod into the water. Splash! This is not the same bridge in yesterday's photograph. Wichita has a lot of bridges.
