Historic downtown Ottawa is decked out for the holidays. Because I like to suffer for my art, I waited until the evening following our first snowfall of winter to bundle up and shoot photographs of the Victorian buildings on South Main Street, which are dressed up with lights on every facade and Christmas trees in every storefront window. My favorite touch is the star perched on top of the grain silo at the Ottawa Coop building. The snow was mostly gone, but the Christmas cheer could not be melted.
Christmas lights bring warmth to an otherwise chilly night in Ottawa, Kansas.
Happy holidays to all of my friends out there in the online universe!
