Happy Solstice, Festive Holidays!

By Vladimir Brezina

This morning we passed the Solstice of December 21, 2012, otherwise known as, and we can be cautiously optimistic—I am, on the whole, an optimist—that the world as we know it will continue…

So it seems safe to wish everyone a Happy Winter (or Summer, as it may be) and Festive Holidays!

And safe to respond to Ailsa’s photo challenge, which this week, very appropriately, is Festive

    • Thanks, Sydney! I don’t use Photoshop all that much—it’s easy to overuse it for photos that should be more or less realistic—but for special effects and occasions, like this one, it has everything!
