    As with years past, it's my wife's idea, and then my handywork. This topped last year's Cinderella carriage, I think.

    We had 3 of our adult friends come out with us this year. We go down the street full of historic mansions, then go hit up a kid-friendly restaurant for dinner, then finally wind up at a block party full of friends from her school. Eventually we got everyone back to our place, put the girl to bed, drank homebrew, watched Ghost Busters, and crashed. What a great night.

    Sunday, we took it out again, because... I just couldn't dismantle it that quickly.

    For those that care, I should say all of these are the X-T1 and the 23 f1.4 lens. I actually brought the two remote flash setup with me that night, but really wasn't tempted to deal with it. And the 23 did me right.

    Sweet! I presume you all practice saying "Aargh!" before you went out. If the wind comes up, you might have to take a reef in the main.

    Cheers, Jock

    I do really like your photos, but the subjects (and your handiwork) get half of my "Like" this time.

    Peoples' reactions were the best part.
