The original of these photos did not have the reflections. The reflections were created in Photoshop. I love the artistic freedom this program allows. I'm learning new techniques every day.

A few photos from historic St. Charles. This is the cutest historic town I think I've ever visited. You literally feel like you've stepped into another time. The streets are lined with beautiful old homes and buildings some still homes and others turned into shops. During the holidays, Christmas characters roam the streets from Nutcracker characters to civil war Santas to Scrooge. There are carolers, horse drawn carriage rides, and Dickens-like characters roasting chestnuts over a fire. It's beautiful with all the lights and decorations. It's becoming an annual event for us and something I look forward to each year.
One of my favorite things to do this time of year is to go visit historic St. Charles, MO. You feel as if you've stepped back in time and entered into a Charles Dicken's story.
