Welcome to my annual week-long foray into low-light photography. Or, as it’s known by its given name, Chanukah!
Our favorite holiday started Saturday night. So far the kid hasn’t hated any of his gifts. But it’s still early.
As usual (well, for the last few years), my older son joined us via Skype from UTSA. I could hear him chanting along with the candle-lighting prayer and could watch him open his first-night present.
While I’m glad that technology allows us to be “together” when there are so many miles between us, I’ll be so happy when my collegian is finished with finals (which start Wednesday) and will be home for the last two nights.
Being together for at least part of our holiday makes it even better and definitely brighter.
Plus there will be so many more candles to photograph with the addition of yet another menorah on the seventh and eighth nights!
