Whizzing By a Yard Full of Lights Near Galion Ohio

Just south of  Galion Ohio.  We were on our way back from Thanksgiving at the Farm.

I was the passenger with my camera at the ready.  James was able to tell me when we were getting close.

Although Laura slowed down, she couldn’t stop.

Not really possible to get a good night photo while driving by this front yard filled with colorful

Christmas lights.

Want to see a better photo of the display? here is a good one in this article in the Galion Inquirer

Nowhere to stop or drive around a block. It was a two lane highway/road.  I pressed the shutter as fast as I could.

You get the idea and can appreciate all the effort this family went to decorating.  WOW. Turns out they have been doing this for twenty years. After reading the article I see they welcome people to drive in through the lighted arches and turn around in front of their garage.  We didn’t realize it at the time we whizzed by.  Maybe there will be another opportunity.

It was something to see, even if the lights went by in a flash. Like an unresolved three D image.

Night time view at Aunt Linda and Uncle Frank’s. You can see two of Uncle Frank’s vintage cars he’s restored.

When we pulled up to the stop sign, we saw Kennywood  Fireworks at seemingly eye level because their street is up so high.

 

Atop the Stump at the Farm etc.

And a few other pics for the second ATOP gallery.

  I was talking with my friend today and said I don’t think I use the word atop in my everyday vocabulary.  But I seem to have a few photos from the archives that illustrate it.
