Thursday Two Questions Meme - Holiday Season Giveaway

Image
I went to my local neighborhood mall yesterday to wander around and see the Christmas tree.  The stores were buzzing with excitement with lines of people checking off their holiday lists and children running around playing with motorized cars and toys.  
What really struck me was the fact that Santa was all alone for a very long time.  He looks pretty lonely there doesn't he?
I watched him for a little while, while taking shots of the mall decorations.  I thought to myself maybe I should go sit on his lap and tell him what I want for Christmas.  I actually thought it would be kind of fun until I realized that when asking myself what I wanted for Christmas, my mind went completely blank.  Why? It's because I have all I want and need.  There is absolutely nothing I want.
For me, especially this year giving is much more important than receiving.  I have always considered holidays such as Christmas, Valentines Day etc... as an excuse for retailers to make "the big bucks.&quo…

Thursday Two Questions Meme

Image
Some might say I've got rocks in my head and I would have to agree.  Ever since I can remember I have had a fascination with rocks.  I know, I need to get a life :)  
When I visit the beach which I did recently, I took more photos of rocks then I did the actual ocean.  I love the textures, shapes, colors and the shadow and imprints the rocks create on the sand.  As a photographer, rocks provide me with endless photo opportunities.  Some might find this strange yet for me it's as normal as can be.
My two questions this week are:
1,  What do you most enjoy photographing?
2.  What is the strangest thing you have ever photographed?
