Not Christmas Photos
The winter holidays are a great time to photograph - family and friends, lights, rich colors, carefully prepared and displayed food, traveling out of town, inclement weather... I always try to find things to photograph that are a little off the beaten track, not the center of attention, or which require a more careful look to find. In other words, not your usual Christmas photos. Here are some images from recent Christmases spent in Mendocino, Grass Valley and Oakland, California.
