Grandma & Grandpa’s House

Is this house just really a house? I suppose it all depends on the kind of “house” you grew up in. We have all heard discussions about what makes a house a home, and again, this can be very subjective. What happens when a home is sold and it is your first Holiday Season thinking […]

And The Winner Is…

It’s been obvious for awhile, huh? Congratulations to the Magro family from 999 Flying Fish on a fabulous display! They win a $100.00 gift certificate to Turtle Bay at the Metro Center. Also winning a similar gift certificate was one of you folks who commented…there were 87 comments, “likes” on facebook or e-mails sent to me. […]

Let There Be Lights-#7

Last, but certainly not least, is our final contestant. The Wenzel’s house at 515 Pitcairn. I had to avoid traffic so many times I ended up shooting this video at an angle that probably doesn’t show it off as well as I wanted to…but I can tell you it’s a fantastic display. One that’s well worth […]

Let There Be Lights-#6

Some whole neighborhoods are ripe with lights this year. Most of Flying Fish is great, Pompano is terrific as is Catamaran as it turns into Spinnaker. Alden Park is another outstanding choice if you’re looking for a neighborhood to go see and this entry, 711 Anacapa is really outstanding. It’s the product of the Gregori family […]

Let There Be Lights-#5

This noble effort is Jeff and Kim’s townhouse at 747 Neptune and they are the reigning champions…having won this contest last year. It’s really an accomplishment and one that was hard fought for them as it was a battle with their HOA to keep it up. It’s great stuff, alot of fun, and worth the effort […]

Let There Be Lights-#4

I misspoke on this video. This home is actually 296 Shearwater and is the product of the Wallace family. Not having a boat, it’s sort of a challenge to get good shots of waterfront lights displays. This one is clearly and wonderfully visible from Gull Park. Remember, each and every comment placed on any of the […]

Let There Be Lights-#3

If you’re here looking for the Friday Foto contest…it’s on hiatus. Instead, here’s another opportunity for you to win something. Just like last year, we’re voting on the Foster City home with the best light display! There will be 2 gift certificates to Turtle Bay of $100.00 each given out, 1 to the winner of […]

Let There Be Lights 2009-#2

This fantastic entry is the product of the Turtletaub family at 394 Pompano. It’s got a ton of detail and is a strong competitor this year. Honestly, I’m surprised how many really great light displays there are in Foster City this year! Remember to check out the rules noted on yesterday’s post. Remember, each and every […]

Let There Be Lights-2009

I’m suspending the Foto Contest for the rest of the year and in it’s place we’re going to, once again have a competition to see who has the best light display in Foster City.  Between now and Christmas Eve I’m posting a photo of a Foster City home that out does itself with a light display. […]
