It's a weekday afternoon before Christmas at On Main Off Main. Shop co-owners Bill Davis and Oscar Camacho wear festive green holiday sweaters as jazzy Christmas music plays in the background. A small group of college students giggle while browsing the shelves, which are filled with gag gifts and other novelties that have made On Main Off Main a popular enterprise in Monte Vista.

My good friends at ChildSafe reached out for help with their annual HALO Stocking Gift Drive. ChildSafe serves families and children traumatized by child abuse and neglect. Always ready to assist a good cause, I am passing on this information. Of the more than 1,500 families served annually at ChildSafe, 67 percent live on an annual income of $15,000 or less. ChildSafe is asking for your help to provide joy and delight to the child victims and their families, who will not otherwise have a holiday experience.

Our small family at NOWCastSA is known for doing things different, so a traditional holiday card to our friends and supporters simply wouldn't do.In our humble office nestled on the highest floor of the San Antonio Public Library downtown, we turned the cameras on ourselves. We didn't really have a plan or a script so don't expect perfection or even polished. It took a few (or a dozen) takes, but we had fun with it.

On Friday, Dec. 9, NOWCastSA was invited to be a part of the holiday lighting party at Avenida Guadalupe by offering to work with people who wanted to know more about shooting photos and videos with their cell phones or digital cameras.Below are some of the photos from those who showed up to our table, as well as some photos from our staff. We helped about 10 people in a short span, allowing them to use our digital cameras and Flip video cameras to walk around and learn how do great work with easy equipment.
