Photographer's Note

Another shot of the strange X-mas decorations we have this year in Caracas. This is a giant gardener made out of bright wrapping paper and with some lights. I took the shot at the square in front of the Church of Don Bosco in Altamira. The overall decoration looks great at night with the many lights, but the figures that form part of the decoration are not really X-mas like. In Las Mercedes and close to Parque Central, there are lights above the Güaire (the river that crosses Caracas) simulating the sea and you can see fish, turtles and butterflies (as far as I have been able to see so far).

There are some other pictures of this decoration (but taken at the Altamira entrance to the highway) at: http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/photo523648.htm and http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/photo528675.htm

Just increased contrast and sharpness a bit, resized and added the frame. I like this tilt.
