lightsPart One of our visit to Zoolights in Tacoma:
The zoo is decorated with colorful holiday lights in various configurations including animal outlines. The most fun ones are animated! The display uses LED lights and they are sharper without the halo that you see around incandescent bulbs, so they don't look as warm as the Christmas lights I''m used to. But they are bright and entertaining.

I snapped several photos that were badly blurred like the one on the left. The exposures were long because of the darkness, and I have a slight tremor that seems magnified now that my right shoulder is (still) weak, so the only steady pictures were ones where I found a post to hold the camera on.

In daylight, I compensate by taking duplicate pictures so that one is likely to be sharp. I really need to use a tripod.
