And when I went into the church I found another nice lady who told me that a few people climb up the 80 stairs to the top of the bell tower to take photographs overlooking the whole city. So she unlocked the door for me and I began to climb. Before threw open the trap door to go out on to the very top. I took this shot in the darkness and discovered the bell and some nice colors in the bell chamber. 30 seconds at f22 with an ND filter and ISO f22.
Joanne absolutely loves Christmas; it's her favorite holiday. The bins full of decorations came down out of the attic and storage closets right after Halloween and the Christmas music has been on non-stop for a couple of weeks now already. I just try to stay out of the way as much as possible.
