Story, photos and video by Mike Tripp, contributor
Holiday lights are joyous, bringing a smile to the Grinchiest face.
After the past year, the idea of this season’s outdoor light displays brightens the gloom of 2020.
So, when asked to photograph the light display at 210 Keswick Circle in Dayton that even dances to music piped into your car, the answer was easy.
One problem. … How does one photograph something that is so visually impressive because it moves in time to music?
Still photos are fantastic, but sometimes you need a little video to capture that full moving picture.
While out photographing the original display, I could not help but enjoy some of the other displays scattered about Dayton.
Here are some of what caught my eye.
P.S. : The two Minions were my favorite. Especially with a smaller one hiding in the bushes across the street.
