TSO Lost Christmas Eve 2013
The laser light show, the wonderfully talented musicians and vocalists made last night's performance by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra one of the best shows I've seen. I have always wanted to see this show and wish I had done so a long time ago. This is the 15th year of the TSO Christmas show. I will be going back next year. Thanks for the ticket John, I owe you.

It must take a long time to set up and then take down that huge tree at Macy's.
Can you put that camera down for a minute?
Another photographer who prefers to be on the other side of the camera instead of the subject. Smile John, you're on CMC camera!
One tree blooming, one tree naked.
