Day 159



Happy New Year! I decided to brave the cold to get a shot of the town clock right at The Stroke of Midnight of The New Year, and was unexpectedly rewarded with some fireworks on a neighboring block...

May we all have a year of peace, joy, health, and the occasional unexpected reward.

That is so cool!!! How awesome you got the fireworks, too. Those are so hard to get and to get it perfectly like you did is amazing!

What great luck to have the fireworks exactly where they were and the clock strike midnight. It's like winning the lottery without the cash prize.

What a great shot! Sometimes one makes one's own luck, and I suspect you worked hard to get lucky on that one!

Have a fantastic 2009!
