Laurie Zuckerman celebrated Christmas Eve day with a drive in the country to Cheyenne, Wyoming, hoping to spot some nativity scenes along the way. Magically, on the way home, I spotted this nearly life-size plastic family in Weld County, just east of Fort Collins. I'll be out scouting again today in Weld County, as the sun is shining here and there is no snow for a white Christmas. Hope you are enjoying your own festive Christmas!
Here's a few shots I took tonight in Fort Collins, on a lucky hunch that the historic Tres Colonias neighborhoods might have a few good nativity scenes. That's how I spent my Christmas evening, stealing into people's driveways to photograph these lighted shrines. I even caught up with this Virgin of Guadalupe Shrine, which has probably been up for the past couple of weeks, if not longer.
