these are the pictures from when i went to see the nutcracker put on by John Hays O'Neil Studio of Dance my parents and i go to see it every year, so it's sort of a tradition of ours. even though it's always the same story, i love watching the different dancers and dances each year. this is the first year i took pictures, and i only took pictures of the second half. i must say it was a mistake, but a good idea at the same time...i would really have loved to take pictures of the first half, but i'm glad i only did the second half because right before the bows, the camera died. if i had taken pictures of the whole thing, it would have died a lot sooner...and you would be even more over-loaded with pictures. oh and that's another thing..i took 267 pictures so beware..it's a very large photo dump. not all the pictures are there because some i deleted due to blurriness, but a good portion of them were taken on the sports mode so most of them aren't blurry...enjoy!
