Krohn Conservatory Christmas Display

The Krohn Conservatory Christmas Display in Cincinnati, Ohio is simply beautiful!  As I watched small children running from display to display, I felt like one of them, excited every time I took a photograph.  I almost tripped a few of them as I was running from spot to spot!  Poinsettias were everywhere!

Here’s the John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge that spans the Ohio River from Cincinnati to Covington, Kentucky.  Mr. Roebling also designed the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City!

The colorful and intoxicating display of flowers and plants was almost overwhelming!

The cute trains chugging along, high and low, brought back memories of a Christmas long ago…

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Future Tense

Living in the present, but planning for the future is a fine balancing act.  I once read that if you dwell on the past too often…you become depressed and on the future…you become anxious.  I believe I tend to plan too much.  These photos represent being in the present, but something is about to take place…hence the future!  I don’t have a smart phone…so these were taken with a camera…

This photo is from the Ballestine Islands in Peru – 2009.  The birds are either taking flight…or preparing to do so…

Hopefully, you read Park I of my Enchanted Forest at the Krohn Conservatory yesterday.  If not, you can read it here.  I like being a Tourist in my own City!

The Waterfall at the Krohn Conservatory is lovely!  I fooled around with the Aperture and was able to get that silky effect.  It’s on my “to-do list” to learn more about my camera!
