In an unequal exchange, Tustin Toyota gave me a free pass to Knott’s Berry Farm, for some rather expensive auto repairs. I decided to make use of the pass last Sunday during the period of time that Knott’s Berry Farm becomes Knott’s Merry Farm.
I was looking to take some photos with a Christmas theme.
My favorite Christmas colors: Blue, Silver & White
My favorite part of the day was the Ice Show – “It’s Christmas, Snoopy”
It was a challenge to photograph in the dark theater. I had to use the auto ISO feature of my camera in order to get a faster shutter speed so things don’t look too blurry
The fast movement of the skaters was a challenge also. Some blur shows movement, too much looks like a mess.
I changed the white balance to Tungsten to make this more blue.
Not everthing was about Christmas 🙂 I took a number of photos of the train, but all but this one had rides in the background that spoiled the shot.
I found some back-lit flowers
The Peanuts Holiday Parade closed out the day (almost). The lone ornament on Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree shows a reflection of the tree and Charlie Brown’s backend 😉
It was about this time I discovered my memory card wallet was missing (still missing) and I had only 1 shot left to get the photo I was really after.
It was long after dark when I got back to my car only to have the check engine light come on. Another trip to Tustin Toyota was in store for Monday..but that’s another story. My next photo story may be from the auto show looking for my next car 🙁
