A Snap, A Set and A Song - Red

Time once again to link up with Thea at A Snap, A Set and A Song for this week's theme of Red. This marks the first time in weeks that I have been able to participate two weeks in a row. Between a trip to Disney World, Hurricane Sandy and a nor'easter things have been far from normal here. Hopefully this will start a trend.

The Snap

Speaking of Walt Disney World, this was taken last December during Holiday Wishes, the winter holiday fireworks show in The Magic Kingdom.

The Set

Back to Disney World, but this time in the Spring - last April to be exact - and the International Flower and Garden Festival.

And finally ...

The Song

We started this week with Christmas season fireworks and we end with a Christmas season song. Gene Autry was a film and TV singing cowboy star in the 1930's into the 1950's but his best known work is most likely a song he wrote and recorded in 1949. When I first found this on YouTube it brought back many memories since I had the 78 rpm record shown here when I was very young. (You may need to click on Watch on YouTube to see it, but for the reason stated previously I wanted to use this particular clip.)


  1. Beautiful snap, gorgeous set, and perfect song!

    So happy you're back online and linking up. :)

    1. Glad to have power and internet back. Sad that there are still thousands here on Staten Island who do not.

  2. This is so good! The snap is gorgeous! Didn't think of Rudolph's RED nose! Great job!

    1. Thanks! That was my first attempt at fireworks photos

      something I am trying to perfect. :-)

      I was quite excited when I found that clip on YouTube. Brought back memories of the days of 78 rpm vinyl.
