    I took advantage of the "members only" night to visit Longwood Gardens which is a world famous botanical garden in my town. They go all the way wrapping everything in sight with lights and setting up other light installations.

    I got some shots walking around with the very light kit of the X-E1 and the 14mm f/2.8 and 35mm f/1.4 -- one in my jacket pocket, one on the camera. Did a lot more with the 14mm despite the low light.

    I'll add to these as I process them out but it's late tonight.

    Thanks,

    It's likely too far for you to come, Bill, but it's a very colorful place summer and winter. The lights are always a highlight, pardon the expression. If you get up this way I'll take you in on my nickel.

    A couple more and thanks for all the comments. This is the last of them. Once again, X-E1 for all of them with either the 14mm or 35mm. Some of these are more me having fun than Christmas themed.
