The dark comes early

November 19, 2008

My daughter’s school does a Lantern Walk each fall, as the dusk comes earlier and earlier.

It’s a tricky time of day to take pictures sans a tripod, but I’m there first and foremost as a parent, and so I fore-go the clunky extra equipment and try to keep a steady hand.

A variation on the paper lanterns, the 1st graders did decorated mason jars this year.

The first-graders getting ready to do the play of St. Martine.

Guess I mostly took pictures of the 1st graders!

Loved all the faces on these two.

"Is it lit?"“Is it lit?”

Some of the big kids waiting for the littler ones to catch up.

Such beautiful colors in the dark.

Getting too dark for pictures!

And even when my hand isn't steady enough - the resulting smear of color is beautiful.
