Some people start getting in the Christmas spirit as soon as Halloween is over, while others don’t feel it until Christmas Eve. I sort of fall in between. I tend to get a little stressed over the Christmas shopping especially since I usually have to do it in between snow storms, so I don’t normally start to get excited until that is done. This year the weather has co-operated beautifully, so I am pretty much done buying gifts for everyone, except for my husband who never gives me any ideas!! Yesterday I even started some wrapping, which is pretty damn good considering it is only the first week of December, and last night we went to my husband’s Christmas party for work, so now I am really starting to feel the Christmas spirit. As a result, I thought it might be appropriate to post a festive picture.
Last year, on Christmas Eve, after all the final wrapping had been done and the presents placed under the tree, I spent some time relaxing by experimenting with my camera. I took pictures of the illuminated tree with the room lights on and off, and I snapped close-up pictures of the ornaments on the tree. As usual some pictures didn’t turn out at all, but I did manage to get some pretty interesting shots, like this one where the ornament shows a reflection of me taking the picture. It’s a little blurry, but I still like it.
