Beautiful Sandwich

This is at Marsha's house.

I love shooting this place during the holidays.  It's so beautiful.

It was not only freezing cold but windy, after a very mild day.

I think I was in my teens when I finally realized that Water Street and Rte. 130 were the same thing.

The tree in Shawme Pond.  I didn't get to see Jay & Sean put it in this year.

See how windy?  The flag was really flapping!

I went back to town another day to shoot some of the 'giants' as they are known, and which are springing up all over town.  They are the creation of Glassblower Michael Magyar of The Sandwich Glass Studio of Cape Cod.  This one is at the Black Crow Gallery in E. Sandwich.  There are quite a few and I was pulling over and shooting quickly, sans tripod, so I missed a lot of them or the pics didn't come out good enough to post.

At Riverview School

Card shop.

Here is the Glass Studio's original Giant.

Sand Dollar Realty.  This is one of my favourites.

Beehive Restaurant.

Scenic Roots garden center. (it will always be Agway to me).

Sandwich Blue Knight at the high school.  New this year.

St. John's Episcopal Church

Old Man Winter at the Weather Shop.

Dolphin candlestick at the Glass Museum

This swan is new this year and on private property.  The light in the center is out on Rte. 6A and couldn't be eliminated.  Shooting it from the other side would have been worse due to additional lighting issues.  It's very striking on this dark part of the road.
Merry Christmas!

    My Dad just got one this year- you'll have to shoot it next near- it's a woodcarver with a chisel in his hand. I haven;t seen it lit up yet.
