TRAVEL THEME: CIRCLES

“Visions of the Holidays” is my theme for this month.  Keeping with that theme and joining Ailsa’s Travel Theme: Circles, I submit the below photos for entry in her challenge.  See what others submitted on the link above.

SPHERE TREE

MARKET SQUARE SPHERE TREE

A 33-foot, 1-ton “tree” of red-and-white spheres shimmering with 150,000 LED lights that dance to synchronized holiday music nightly.

TREE ORNAMENT

CHRISTMAS TREE ORNAMENT

UNITED STATES CAPITAL

UNITED STATES CAPITAL ORNAMENT

When I visited Washington D.C. for the 100th Anniversary of the Cherry Blossom Festival we visited the United States Capital for a tour.  This was the ornament I picked up as a souvenir of my visit.

BE ENCOURAGED!  BE BLESSED!
