Nature Footstep ... Catching the Light

Doodle lights :)
My neighbors have a maple tree beside their garage and every year they hang this string of lights on it.  I call it my doodle lights because from every angle there is another set of doodle characters to be found.  I am sure they don't put them up there for my entertainment, but I find it to be great fun while I am out walking Izzi.

So ... do you see what I see?  

Merry Christmas Everyone


  1. The lighting effects are very open for interpretation. I see a dog and Santa Claus.

  2. Hah...I think I have that same neighbor! Had not thought to look at it as a doodle...very clever♪

  3. A dog in a christmas hat and, on the right, a dog with beagle ears and a seals expression.
    Happy Christmas...

  4. Oh I think you could look at this for ages andsee more and ore.For now it is an Elephant and a seal

  5. Great lines of lights for exercising your imagination!

  6. And I bet you see many different owls there every year Andrea:)! Great pic - i like the way you picked up the bright wiggly lines. Happy Christmas:))

  7. It reminds me of the old Etch-a-sketch.

  8. A profile and a dog in the tree, must be fun.
    Happy Holidays to you

  9. My first thought was I see a rocking horse. But then the longer you look, you can see so many more different things. I never thought to photo these trees and then try to figure out what they might look like. Good job Andrea!!

    I have not gone out looking for lights to photograph this year. Maybe next year. The good part about working is that you have to leave the house whether or not you want to. Retirement has made me quite lazy about going out. I'll have to work on that in the new year.

    I was going to wrap that large box that Santa dropped off for Pogo so that I could bring it into the living room but I think instead I just might wait and set it up tomorrow night, Christmas Eve.

    I thought that most all of the dwarfs were going to spend Christmas day with their families, but now a few of them are re-thinking their plans. Dwarf Helen has announced that she will be cooking a lasagna dinner for everyone. I think that's what made some of the dwarfs to change their plans. Funny how food can have this effect on guys.

    I haven't yet decided what to make for Pogo and me, but I'll figure that out this morning, and make a quick run to the market. Right now, I think I'll head for the kitchen and rustle up some breakfast for my little guy. You and Izzi have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

  10. I can see why you like it. I can see figures too :)

  11. :)
    That sounds like fun.
    I'm sure we all see different things there.
    I hope you had a good Christmas. Belated wishes, Andrea.
