Lights and invisible tree

With the flash, so you'll know what I'm going to show you:

The silvery thing is a stainless steel shield boss (domed center for a medieval shield), a gift from Duke Artan to Bardolf (translation: from Jeff to Marty), and the flat steel to the left of that is the shield it's going to go onto. They're going to get together to build the shield later.

I'm thinking everyone should put stainless steel things under their trees, though (not that I have "a tree," but no matter...) because look what the lights did on the steel, or what the steel does to the lights, or something:

Here's what the whole thing looks like (or looked like, for those who will see this after daylight on Christmas) in the dark, and what Keith looked like Saturday morning before he went to the Midwinter Feast:

And last, earlier tonight in Old Town. I didn't take a lot of pictures. I took a photo of some joinery in a beam and of some luminarias (farolitos, they're called, further north, but not in Albuquerque). These were taken from where I was standing in a passageway in Old Town, one of the places we stopped to sing. We saw more beautiful things, but it wasn't a good night for photography.
