How To Play These are The Special Times

Cover band in France

This picture was taken at a concert of a cover band in France. The photographer used a 50mm 1.8 lens to let as much light in as possible. When wide open you have a small depth of field which causes the background to blur. Please keep France in your prayers... I have been thinking about how much love and support has surrounded them through this very difficult time. With the holidays coming, keep your loved ones so close to your heart.

I remember Celine Dion singing this very popular song, These Are The special Times. It's track #12 on the 1998 album with the same name. The song was written by Diane Warren. It's a beautiful one.
