Weekly Photo Challenge: Twinkle

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Twinkle.”

Dyer Lights 2012

In December of 2012 there was a day I had to go to Brooklyn, New York. On the way home I made a wrong turn and found myself on a street where almost every house was decked to the nines with Christmas lights. I made another turn and there were more lights, then another turn – even more. Block after block of Christmas lights galore. It was a complete spectacular! I had stumbled upon the Dyker Lights, a holiday extravaganza in the Dyker Heights section of Brooklyn. I was extatic to have my camera with me and I took tons of photos!

I didn’t load them all immediately into my computer. I put several on facebook and the rest remained on the memory card. That is, they remained on the memory card until my dog, still a puppy, chewed it beyond repair and almost beyond recognition. The card had slipped out of my camera bag and dropped on the floor where it was fair game for puppy teeth. It was a 32 gig card and it — was — full. Months and months of photos were lost except for a few that had somehow made it into the computer or onto facebook. This is one of the few photos that remain of my brief excursion through the Dyker Lights.

    1. Yes, exactly! And perhaps I’ll find yet another lost folder or upload that I forgot about…. And although I can’t revisit those lost months, I could go to Brooklyn again! Not this year… Too busy, but maybe next 🙂


I'd love to know your thoughts!
