Shooter's Comments: Brookside, or the former Bass Mansion at USF, is a terrific place to shoot if you like history and can deal with low light. Crowds were light, so I ask the Bradleys if I could follow them briefly while they toured the house.
Everything was decorated for the holidays, which added a lot of color. The dining room provided the most light, but even then I had to hand-hold this image at about 1/30th of a second and hope they didn't walk too fast. Luckily, Mr. Bradley stopped to take a photo - and so did I.
